    Video games have had a far greater direct impact on society than cloning has IMO. I was a bit surprised that Wireless came out on top but it does make sense. There is a lot that's being done in this field and I think we can only expect it to grown (Blackberries, pagers, phones, internet access, RFIDs, etc.).

    The question is: what will be #1 in 25 years from now?

    Money talks and the market for video games is greater than the market for identical sheep.

    Mainstream media is such a joke. They wouldn't know technology if it bit them on the ass.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.
    - Samuel Johnson
