Who, in your opinion, is the person most important for coordinating our world's technology?

What exactly do you mean by "coordinating"?

russ,

"Coordinating" meaning providing a human link which enables worldwide technological systems to function as a whole.

Dr. Tech


Unfortunately, I think that person, for the past decade or so, has been Bill Gates. As much as Windows is hated by many, the fact is the OS is easy, and has been a massive part of the growth of the entire IT industry, which allows the spread of information.

Hail to the King! :-D

Seriously though, I think the next person will be related to spacetechnology... All in all, the alltime greatest challenge is to allow people to colonize other worlds and spread ( and sadly, as we know supress/kill local inhabitants/"aliens" ) as far as we posibly can... Achieving this would be the ultimate success of our civilisation, the only, if any, reason for our existense, except of course for survival...
Maybe the person will be some director at NASA or in a private company, who see profit in space travel or planetary colonisation. Cant name anyone for the time being though...

One could ask "what about nanotech, cloning, computers, genomresearch and that stuff?" Well, IMHO that aids to either maintain our survival, or help us get into space...
That's how I see it

Best regards

Thomas Hansen
