Speculation on the future of science
Posted on 20th March, 2006
If you are into science stuff, there’s an interesting article by Kevin Kelly in the Edge speculating how will science evolve in the future.

I’m willing to bet the scientific method 400 years from now will differ from today’s understanding of science more than today’s science method differs from the proto-science used 400 years ago. A sensible forecast of technological innovations in the next 400 years is beyond our imaginations (or at least mine), but we can fruitfully envision technological changes that might occur in the next 50 years.
I am always interested to know what’s the next big thing would be, not only 50 years from now but perhaps 400 years in the future.
Based on the suggestions of the observers and the author’s own imagine, the article present an intriguing look into the possible near-term advances in the evolution the scientific method.
