TIME magazine has a new series of articles “10 Ideas That Will Change the World”. Some are short, but the opening article is long, thoughtful and researched: “Sweet Bird of Youth! The Case for Optimism” takes an optimistic view of the global “youth bulge” in the population.
Incidentally, the TIME Picture Editor has chosen to illustrate to the road the future with a technology from the past, light bulbs. It gets the message across, but the world really needs to find some new visual metaphor for inspiration.
