Over at Cosmic Variance, Risa Wechsler has a fun and thoughtful post that’s spurred some interesting comments:
From Paul Kedrosky, via Rebecca Blood, an excellent challenge:
Physicist Richard Feynman once said that if all knowledge about physics was about to expire the one sentence he would tell the future is that “Everything is made of atoms”. What one sentence would you tell the future about your own area, whether it’s entrepreneurship, hedge funds, venture capital, or something else? Examples: An economist might say that “People respond to incentives”. I had an engineering professor years ago who said all of that field could be reduced to “F=MA and you can’t push on a rope”.
There’s lots of good and diverse responses out there…
