The interwebs presented me with something new this morning. What if “we the people” could choose what we wanted to scientifically invest in? I thought this was an interesting idea. The main complaint seems to be that we should not allow the “stupid majority of the population” to decide what gets funded. Now, I’m not sure that the “stupidity majority” are typically in the habit of funding scientific experiments, but I could be wrong about that 😉
I applaud the goal to create “an open model of scientific research”, but I think I might have to give this one a miss. The animal testing gets me every time. Interesting concept, though. Check it out for yourselves.
