Higher Purpose: Space Elevator
Here's an article on space elevators on Futurist.com.

I have been somewhat skeptical of the idea of a space elevator - for some reason it just doesn't ring true. In this article, I think the official death knell has been sounded by the sureity of the following quote:

"Futurist.com friend and writer David Brin was recently quoted as saying that our grandchildren will certainly ride elevators to space..."

A corollary to any law of predicting the future is that as soon as a supposed expert claims that an exotic vision will positively come to fruition, that idea is positively dead.
