Keeping Up with the Despots 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories
One columnist wondered whether democracy was nimble enough to compete with tyranny. Can an open democracy develop and adopt new technologies as well as an authoritarian state can? It's a question we might ask today, given China's transformation over the past decade into the leading manufacturer of solar panels and other emerging technologies ( see " The Chinese Solar Machine " ...
The Mystery Behind Anesthesia 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories
Mapping how our neural circuits change under the influence of anesthesia could shed light on one of neuroscience's most perplexing riddles: consciousness. A video screen shows a man in his late 60s lying awake on an operating table. Just outside the camera's view, a doctor is moving his finger in front of the man's face, instructing him to follow it back and forth with his eyes. Seconds later, after a dose of the powerful anesthetic drug propofol, his eyelids begin to droop. Then his pupils stop moving. Only the steady background beeping of the heart monitor serves as a reminder that the man isn't dead. "He's in a coma," the doctor, Emery Brown, explains. "General anesthesia is a drug-induced reversible coma." ...

Fire in the Library 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories
Once, we stored our photos and other mementos in shoeboxes in the attic; now we keep them online. That puts our stuff at the mercy of companies that could decide to throw it away—unless Jason Scott and the Archive Team can get there first. Until a few months ago, Poetry­.com held more than 14 million user-submitted poems, some dating back to the mid-1990s. The site existed to make money: it had ads and at one point sold $60 anthologies to fledgling poets who wanted to see their work in print. But to the users, Poetry.com was much more than a business. It was a scrapbook, a chest for storing precious emotional keepsakes. And they assumed, perhaps naïvely, that it would always be there. ...

The head of research at Hewlett-Packard talks about the ­disruptive technologies that could ensure HP's survival.

Hewlett-Packard is in trouble. Smart phones and tablets threaten to trivialize its status as the world's largest PC maker; cloud computing is destabilizing its server business; printers are no longer seen as high tech. HP's stock price plunged in 2011 as the company groped for a strategic direction.



"Tectonic Shifts" in Employment 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories
Information technology is reducing the need for certain jobs faster than new ones are being created. The United States faces a protracted unemployment crisis: 6.3 million fewer Americans have jobs than was true at the end of 2007. And yet the country's economic output is higher today than it was before the financial crisis. Where did the jobs go? Several factors, including outsourcing, help explain the state of the labor market, but fast-advancing, IT-driven automation might be playing the biggest ...

Cell phones that display your vital signs and take ultrasound images of your heart or abdomen. Genetic scans of malignant cells that match your cancer to the most effective ...

The Law of Online Sharing 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg will eventually have to deal with the fact that all growth has limits.

The idea of limitless growth gives sleepless nights to environmentalists, but not to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He espouses a law of social sharing, which predicts that every year, for the foreseeable future, the amount of information you share on the Web will double.



Defining Experience 20.12.2011 Technology Review Feed - Tech Review Top Stories
A better definition of consciousness will help with tough ethical choices. Much empirical research is devoted to the "hard problem," as the philosopher David Chalmers has put it, of why human information processing is accompanied by the subjective experience we call consciousness. Solving this problem has real clinical consequences for some patients (see " The Mystery Behind Anesthesia ") ...
