AAAS 2007 annual meeting

First, what is AAAS? It is the American Association for
the Advancement of Science, and, in these days, it is holding
its annual meeting in S. Francisco. The issues discussed are
extremely interesting, and most diverse, from nanotech to
energy, environment, climate changes, endangered species
and so on... I just wanted to highlight the intervention of
Larry Page (yes, THE Larry Page from Google) about
science and marketing, i.e. about the ancestral problems
of communication between scientists and, well, everybody
else... It is a brief but very meaningful speech, which was
pretty much apreciated by the audience itself....
