“If you come forward with something that is not connected to the current reality, people don’t know what to do with it. What many academics do is to spend the next 5-10 yrs putting the connections in place to make what’s being proposed a natural extension of what existed before.” https://twitter.com/ceptional/status/1349442403158036481
Founder of Moderna explains that it's fortunate they weren't in academia - they would have had a tough time publishing their discoveries, due to skepticism by journal editors and reviewers. https://conversationswithtyler.com/episodes/noubar-afeyan/
when one is deep into a fine grained debate on the *accuracy* of a facial recognition system in recognizing, say, India vs Nepalese faces, they have already lost the ground — they proceed from the fallacious premise that race/ethnicity can be read off of faces.

I hate that having publications is the new norm for post-baccs or undergrads applying to PhD programs in psych. It’s not fair. People don’t have equal access to these opportunities and there is a contingency on lab culture.
When asking if lightning caused the forest fire, you might think that the lightning is more of a cause than the dry climate (a graded cause), or you might think that the lightning strike completely caused the fire while the dry conditions didn't cause it at all (a binary cause).
