The future of research is outside academia?

April 18, 2012

My buddy Andrew Wilson linked in this by now oldie but still apt post from Mark Changizi.  Mark brings up the money problem with Universities.  At least in the US.  They need grants to finance their business.  And, getting grants requires publishing often, which requires positive results which… you know the story. Discourages risky ventures, and makes for dull research. 

Jerry Coyne discusses the same idea (in response to Carl Zimmer’s NYT post) here.
