My article on this, from the latest Newsweek, is here. HP, the biggest tech company, is ringing an alarm bell about the future of science and technology. It’s scary stuff. We’re already starving science and engineering students of funding. That may only get worse if we spend billions bailing out banks and automakers. Money quote:
Nobody at HP wants to come out and say we should let automakers die. But it must gall them to see bright, aspiring scientists starved of funding while Detroit gets rewarded for its stupidity.
