Seen on my friend’s wall in facebookland:
“Imagine what we could accomplish if we disregarded patents, profits and intellectual property. Give access to the whole of our current knowledge and understanding to our best collaborative minds. If you knew everything in your field and so did your peers we could triumph so many things.
Had a great conversation with some top people in my field tonight. I can’t imagine what could be accomplished with their shared knowledge alone.”
Oh, Tony! Love the thinking. Somedays I think you should disregard this whole 27th year of medical school and come to FOSS-land. On the other hand, you’re going into Dermatology and, frankly, I’m not getting any younger. 😀 But in all honesty: spreading that thought in other fields is a good thing. Even when you get lambasted by your classmates for 15 comments.
