I am currently fiddling with two topics that will probably make an appearance in the next couple of weeks.
- Since we now live in a world where an almost limitless information is instantly available (man, I love Google!) the big problem becomes, how does one evaluate this information? This means the central subject of any education has become a sort of meta-epistemology.
- The corn belt drought threatens to become one of the most significant economic events in history. The USA has never really suffered a food shortage. What if one develops? How likely is it to happen? What happens if several billion people are priced out of a subsistence diet? What will happen to the speculators who will drive up the price of food without adding a single kernel to the food supply? This drought is not far away—I intend to take pictures.
