'"It's the interaction between fundamental science and applied science, and the interface between many disciplines, that creates new ideas," explains Herwig Kogelnik, the laser scientist. This may indeed have been Kelly's greatest insight.' Now, I know I'm a bit of an idealist, but to me this sounds like the way I and other scientists are using the Internet. I post ideas, they post ideas, and we interact on those ideas. I think things like arXiv and blogs like Haldane's Sieve are moving it in the right direction: free exchange of often rather deep scientific ideas.
