My Heroes

If anyone is going to save our species, it will be the brilliant scientist/inventors who are rethinking the possible and making it real. Here are three of the people you have to rank as heroes of our generation if you believe at all in innovation as the key to our survival -- Dean Kamen, Ray Kurzweil, Craig Venter

Don't tell me its impossible -Dean Kamen

If you reach 1 percent and keep doubling your growth every year, you’ll hit 100 percent in just seven years -Ray Kurzweil

A doctor can save maybe a few hundred lives in a lifetime, a researcher can save the whole world. -Craig Venter
