@laura Reminds me of that quote, I forget who said it: “the greatest minds of my generation are trying to figure out how to make people click on ads.”

It reminds me of a recent news of an Harvard physics PhD student whose work has been even mentioned by Stephen Hawkings, she is 25 and it has been said she will be the next Einstein.

They are evil.
