The year is winding down and it’s holiday time. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and festive solstice!
Folks will have different perspectives on research enterprise and innovation, and its worth having some frank and firm arguing about it, but the whole point of research and innovation is to work toward better things–stuff that betters our lives, gives us health, security, and work to do. Most importantly, research and innovation give us freedom to explore the world we have and make something of our time on it. It’s important not to lose sight of these things. Best wishes for the New Year. Let’s make it a good one!
