Chris Anderson: TED's nonprofit transition | TED Talk |
今晚重新看了一遍 Chris Anderson 从 Richard Wurman 手上买下 TED 的时候做的演讲,他当时做的几个决定现在回头看真是太对了

Chris 演讲里提到说,他早年从事的是科学记者的工具,估计那段经历对于他培养对好东西的品味有极大帮助

The End of Theory: The Data Deluge Makes the Scientific Method Obsolete
"Petabytes allow us to say: "Correlation is enough." We can stop looking for models. We can analyze the data without hypotheses about what it might show. We can throw the numbers into the biggest computing clusters the world has ever seen and let statistical algorithms find patterns where science cannot. … The new availability of huge amounts of data, along with the statistical tools to crunch these numbers, offers a whole new way of understanding the world. Correlation supersedes causation, and science can advance even without coherent models, unified theories, or really any mechanistic explanation at all. There's no reason to cling to our old ways. It's time to ask: What can science learn from Google?"
