The news that Bell Labs is going to be torn down makes me sad. The storied site of many technological inventions, Bell Labs was a throwback to when large corporations actually invested R&D dollars with the farflung future — not the next quarter — in mind.

Now the closest thing we have is Xerox PARC. Where might we find the next organized hotbeds of innovation? Microsoft Research? Perhaps not.
