By Jason Pontin. Technology Review (March 12, 2007; from the March / April 2007 issue). "To this day, my tastes and choices as an editor and journalist are bluntly science fictional: I look for technologies that are in themselves ingenious and that have the potential to change our established ways of doing things. Best of all, I like technologies that expand our sense of what it might mean to be human. In this, I believe, I am an entirely conventional technologist. Most of us came to technology through science fiction; our imaginations remain secretly moved by science-fictional ideas. ... Robots first appeared in Karel Capek's play R.U.R. in 1921. Indeed, it is more useful to ask, What hasn't SF predicted? But the prescriptive power of science fiction has functioned both positively and negatively. Older computer scientists and electrical engineers such as Marvin Minsky and Seymour Cray, born in the mid-1920s, pursued a vision of humanlike artificial intelligence and mainframe computing popularized by science fiction after World War II (see Isaac Asimov's 'Multivac' stories)."

you all really VERY nice and polite! Just no one said anything about the 'white' border at the left side. Since I did it using a Sli Mode in my 'brand new baby pc'I were obliged to use ONE monitor only, doing that I missed the left border! As I'm with flu at home now for 15 loooong days, I guess I lost a bit of patience or else..it's awfull being sick, I haven't have something like that for a some years.I'll fix the border asap!I Asked Staff to change the pic for me, with a new one fixed. Just waiting they email me back! Thanks again!
