Each summer the essays focus on some aspect of technological change, usually with a consumer bent. Past topics have included genetically modified foods, green cars, and solar energy, among others. To the extent possible, information is provided on subjects with relevance to your daily lives now and in the near future. The current issue of the summer series can be found on the "This Month's Essay" page. The "Essay Archives" section contains all essays which have appeared on the site from 2003 to 2011. Essays for 2012 will be added to the archives as the summer progresses. You will find the animals of the Chinese Lunar New Year calendar depicted in this section, and 2012 is the "Year of the Dragon."
