"What? Me Worry?"
Each year, the Edge Foundation poses a question to a panel of original thinkers. This year’s question asked: "What should we be worried about?"  There are some wonderful responses here - Bruce Sterling ponders ‘the singularity', while Robert Sapolsky contemplates free will and Kevin Kelly speaks of the 'underpopulation bomb'.
These types of 'big' questions and the creative ways that people have answered them always serves to re-ground me in one of the basic things that we - here in the Library and here at HWS - are all about: asking relevant questions.
But don't worry - the Library is here to help in your quest for answers.  Welcome back.
