The Big Idea

Salon.com offers a compendium of wonderful articles about the future: innovative developments, useful inventions, creations for improving life and society. You can find them all in the Big Idea directory. My favorite topics include the public transit of the future (a monorail-style system that uses individual electric taxicabs), stylish affordable housing and various photo-sharing communities.

The most recent Big Idea article covers six developments in environmental innovations, including cheap and durable solar panels, high-performance hybrid vehicles, a new form of tourism that protects both domesticated livestock and natural predators, methane plants powered by cow manure, vegetable garden lawns and accelerated bioremediation, the use of genetically engineered bacteria that eat toxic waste.
