Pesco's Salon article on big ideas in technology

As part of their Big Idea series, Salon asked me to describe several tech developments that I find intriguing. I had a lot of fun writing the article, but of course the real credit goes to the amazing people who are actually doing the research! The Big Ideas I cover include:
1. Robugs: Swarms of tiny robotic insects.

2. Hacking DNA: Creating life one BioBrick at a time

3. Location, location, location: The GeoWeb

4. Maker mindset: DIY technology

5. Biology as art: Genetic creativity

6. Desktop manufacturing: 3D printing and inkjet electronics
