How can I get into the field of researching organic computing?
I am 26 and currently have a bachelors of science(criminal justice) degree. This is not the field I want to be in. I would like to research organic computing or anything very similar to that area of knowledge. Looking for some help so I can get pointed in a helpful and correct direction?

Organic computing and electronic system engineering -- it's a new and exciting discipline. I don't know a great deal about it except on an intuitive level. I do believe though, that it and nanotechnology is the new wave of the future. I believe that a key component that will launch a new scientific and technological revolution will come in the form of quantum computing. Quantum information processing, nanotechnology, and organic computing and system engineering will all three converge to generate a new way of looking at reality.
I suggest that you think about a BS degree in molecular biology and genetics (focus your interest toward embryonic stem cells and neuroscience); you will need some kind of background in physics (both quantum and classical); you will need a working knowledge of nanotechnology and organic computing -- and a lot of mathematics.

Sorry, didn't mean to download the whole Internet. The above links just barely touch the surface of what organic computing is really all about. I encourage you to think about building a career in this exciting and productive field.
