The Focus forum is now closed.
We're sad to make this announcement because, over the years, the forum has provided fascinating debate on science and technology, and we’ve often printed the discussions in the magazine.
We’d like to thank everyone who’s joined in and made it such interesting reading for fellow forum members and all of us who work on the magazine.
