MacArthur Genius Grants 2007

The MacArthur Foundation just named its list of grantees for 2007. This is pretty much the coolest award that a person can win - maybe a Nobel or Fields Medal is right up there, too - but looking down the MacArthur list is typically more interesting and definitely diverse. For the technology audience, the most interesting grantee this year is also this year's youngest: Saul Griffith of Squid Labs. Saul's projects are Interesting, Cool, and Useful - all at the same time.
