Dileep George - George has capitalized on new theory about the neocortex and created enough formalism around it to build working technology and a company to commercialize these concepts.

Rebecca MacKinnon - MacKinnon discusses the impact of emerging technologies in China and how the Earth's most populous nation is in turn affecting the future of the Internet.

The Sun Grid is Open for Business

Anyone can now use the Sun Grid for $1/CPUhour. They've gotten a cool url:

After signing up, you upload your application, upload your data, run the job, and download the results. Sorta like batch jobs on a mainframe. You can store applications and data on the grid (I don't know the storage fees).

Sounds like a great way for someone to avoid having to set up and run their own IT infrastructure. As long as your application is in Java.
