Chemistry. Becoming a “networked science” to solve problems and innovate
Filed under: Position Searching, Mature professionals, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 9:49 am

As readers perceive, peeking into the future and
learning from trends in other fields and applying
them to chemistry and chemists seeking
positions
and managing their career is a
primary interest of this blog.

Michael Nielsen is a quantum physicist who has
explored how networks amplify our knowledge.
He has written about networking tools connecting
the right people at the right time to problems,
“activating what would otherwise be latent
expertise.”

We write about how important networking is
in finding and landing positions and managing
our careers.  Profoundly, Nielsen believes that
networking has the potential to speed up and
chain-reacting the application of useful ideas
to unexpected areas.

We believe this is another form that can be
“eyed” to make breakthroughs much as
prizes.  [as mentioned in Tim Harford’s “Adapt”]

It should be no secret that not all problems
can have open access information or wikis or
‘publicly financed’ experimental data be the
key piece that solves the puzzle.  The
suggestion is that this is another thinking
tool in our tool-kit.  1   2   3   4 
Use networking in outside-of-the-box kinds
of ways, like ‘Levy flights’ in searches….
