X Prize founder

I read an inspiring article in the July 2012 issue of Wired magazine.

"X Prize Founder Peter Diamandis has His Eyes on the Future" is a wonderful modern spin on an old custom of encouraging innovation by offering a cash prize.

In the case of the X Prize it was to encourage private access to space.

Diamandis is a forward looking optimist who also wrote a book that I'll probably buy very soon. The book is called "Abundance; The Future Is Better Than You Think"
