According to our esteemed editor Neely, the topic of our upcoming cover story is "really huge, intimidating, and rather scary-sounding" -- but no, it's not part of our Halloweek festivities. It's all about Big Ideas: string theory, deconstruction, postmodernism, the theory of relativity, and some exotic idea in economics that Mangesh is referring to as "the Black-Scholes equation." And our goal is to make all of this hyper-intellectual stuff a lot less huge, intimidating, and scary-sounding. So -- that said, what should we cover? What Big Ideas -- field-changing, paradigm-shifting, big-word-using stuff -- would you like us to make some sense of? Tell us in the comments, and if we like your suggestion, we'll put your name in the magazine.
