My current Common Knowledge column in Northside magazine features physicist Dr. Michio Kaku and his thoughts on the future of the Bay Area, which is where he grew up.

Common Knowledge 
Master of Time and Space 
By John Zipperer
Renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku has seen the Bay Area change from the open fields of his childhood to the insatiable metropolis of today. Now he’s offering a look at what it will be like in the future, and it might make a few people wish for the open fields once again. 
The very busy Kaku is professor of theoretical physics at CUNY and the co-founder of string field theory. He has authored many books, including the current bestseller Physics of the Future; he hosts two weekly radio programs and has hosted numerous science television series; and he frequently appears on national news programs to share his expertise on scientific matters, most recently on the Japanese nuclear crisis.
