Hey, Spike, don't you go calling my favorite magazine "stodgy"! BW has long been not only pro-market, but relentlessly positive in attitude about productive uses of new technologies -- not only information technology, but everything from genetic engineering (see cover feature a few months ago "Field of Greens"), to machine intelligence, to biology, and neural-computer interfaces.

If you want to get good, concise updates on technology, especially as it is actually being applied, Business Week is a great place to go.
