Point Blank with The Economist's Innovation Editor

Tuesday, 04 March 2008 05:30 Written by  Abhishek Published in Point Blank Show

The uncanny resemblance between Paul Markillie and the great Earnest Hemingway explains some of Paul's knack to be witty and forthright to seemingly complicated topics like Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, hybrid cars and nanotechnology.

Paul is responsible for technology, but, mainly Non-IT. While Andreas Kluth covers the tech stories, Paul jokes that he is not treading on his toes and chooses to write about other tech breakthroughs and seeks to answer questions like:

  • How can Unmanned Aerial Vehicles help the common man?
  • How wind up technologies could save the lives of the poor?
  • Can super capacitors replace car batteries in cars of the future?

Sit back and enjoy the ride because Paul goes from Zero to 100 mph in almost real time!
