I thought this was rather interesting and thought some of you might enjoy it.  It reminds me of some the work the MIT Media lab is doing.  Nielsen article

I thought this was interesting.  I'd agree that some of the items in the Potter books do seem achievable with incremental changes in our current technology.  

I also liked the author's discussion of the societal similarities between Potter's world and ours with Computer power users and the non-technically minded.  It is a little bit of a stretch, but it did make his point.

Thanks for sharing this article.

Lovely concept. Except... in the past I *was* Harry Potter.
