Highly Followed People

I wanted to point out that almost everything about science is changing because of the impact of information technology. Experimental, theoretical, and computational science are all being affected by the data deluge, and a fourth, “data-intensive” science paradigm is emerging. The goal is to have a world in which all of the science literature is online, all of the science data is online, and they interoperate with each other. Lots of new tools are needed to make this happen.
Note: Jim Gray will forever be linked to defining the fourth paradigm, that of "data-intensive" science

My message is a simple one: business as usual isn't working. In fact, it's 'business as usual' that's wrecking our planet. Resources are being used up; the air, the sea, the land - are all heavily polluted.
Note: Branson: business as usual isn't working - in fact it's ruining our planet. Indeed.

Writing (and reading) is a sort of exercise in empathy, I think. In life, when you encounter people, you and they have separate trajectories, each person pushing in a different direction. What.s remarkable about fiction is that it places you in the uncommon position of having no trajectory. You stand aside, motives abandoned for the duration. The characters have the trajectories now, while you just observe. And this stirs compassion that, in real life, is so often obscured by our own motives.
Note: Unexpected bonus to The Imperfectionists is Malcolm Gladwell's convo with author Tom Rachman at end.
