I’m MIT Technology Review’s chief correspondent, interested in a wide range of topics including climate change, energy, and information and communication technologies. Recent projects have included traveling to China to write about GMO crop development there, and Germany to explore how they’ll try to ramp up renewable power while closing down nuclear plants. My 2008 feature on the Obama campaign’s social-networking operation was selected for The Best Technology Writing 2009.

  • A Heatstroke-Sensing Helmet

    Hothead Technologies has developed a system that can sense and warn a user of heatstroke. In this video, an RFID transmitter is fitted in a headband and a white temperature-sensing patch touches the wearer’s forehead. Readings are beamed to a PDA (not shown). When the wearer’s temperature hits 102.5 and stays there for 20 seconds, an alarm sounds on the PDA.
