This is the Edge Annual Question for 2010. The lead-in recaps some notable articles and essays of 2009 that set the stage for this question through comments such as • Are we becoming Pancake People — spread wide and thin as we connect with that vast network of information accessed by the mere touch of a button? • Will books end up back where they started, locked away in monasteries and read by a select few? • Modern technology is changing the way people behave, talk, react, think and remember. Are we turning into a new species — “informavores”? • Will the Internet become a place where ideas can evolve outside of human minds? In other words, can we change the way the Internet thinks? About 150 people responded to these questions. http://www.edge.org/q2010/q10_index.html
