The world's changing shape

Tom Friedman is on Imus right now talking about his new book, The World is Flat, in which he points out America is losing its edge, and the next big thing will come from India and China. He says it might now effect our standard of living this year or next year, but fifteen years from now we might not be leading the world in innovation.

I was thinking about this very thing the other day while watching a show on PBS about giving children a look a new innovations in science by an MIT professor. It wasn't American children, but foriegn students. At the time I was thinking, they must be using this project around the world because American students or the American educational system aren't interested.

The Christian Science Monitor has a good review.

This book goes on my Amazon Wish list today.
