In the spirit of the experiment in participatory journalism that Technology Review is conducting at continuous computing , tell me, readers: what should I write my next column about? Bear in mind that I like my column to be loosely associated with the themes of the issue in which it appears (see some examples of recent columns to the left of this posting). The editors have dubbed August the “Summer of Fun” issue. Its major themes are how different network and biological technologies are altering human recreation. There are stories on social computing, food, shopping, enhancement drugs, recreational drugs, travel, and sex. Of all the themes associated with these subjects that could be usefully explored in the literary form of an editor’s column, what would you most like to see me write about?

I can’t promise I will heed your advice–I am, after all, an editor, paid to have my own words, thoughts, learning, and judgments–but if someone suggests a really novel idea, I promise a shout-out in the body of the column. Like our continuous computing blog, this is an experiment. Who knows if it will work? But I feel sure that Technology Review’s readers are a uniquely clever lot–and I am interested in hearing your suggestions.
