2007 MacArthur Fellows

Ah, my favorite awards of the year. Not the Oscars, not the Grammys... the MacArthur Fellows, otherwise known as "MacArthur Genius Grants." Nominated and chosen in a completely secret process, the Fellows are leaders and innovators in their fields (science, the arts, nonprofit, etc.) They win $500,000 to use however they wish. Read about the current class of Fellows here. Always an inspiring group.

(OK, it's my secret dream - well, not such a secret anymore - to win a genius grant someday. I'm not really sure how the heck that's gonna happen... I'd better come up with something geniusy to do!)
