In the Future, We'll All Be Harry Potter (Alertbox Dec. 2002). Jakob in an unusually whimsical mood... but his points are good; Harry Potter's world is filled with stuff that we could have right now. We have the technology. I was discussing this with someone the other day... we have the technology to do so many things, but they aren't done. It's a damn shame. The evil of money/profit is frequently to blame, it seems... eg. all cars could ten times safer than they are now; but it would "cost too much". Depends on how you define "cost", i think.
