Academic Activity

"If you get a letter of recommendation that counts number of publications, rather than commenting substantively on a candidate's contributions, ignore it."

David Lorge Parnas: "Stop the Numbers Game. Counting papers slows the rate of scientific progress", Communication of the ACM , November 2007.

 

"Under the current funding regime, is it possible to obtain support for long-term basic research with little apparent prospect of practical applications? ... Now only safe, incremental "normal science" (Thomas Kuhn) is funded and published, not paradigm shifts. Creativity is slaughtered. ... We are clearly going in the wrong direction now in some societies where creativity is micromanaged by gigantic bureaucracies."

Gregory Chaitin: Proving Darwin. Making Biology Mathematical, Vintage Books, New York, 2012.

 

"In between writing grand proposals describing what I intend to do, and writing reports about what I have done, there in no time left to actually do anything!"

Mario Livio: The Equation That Could't Be Solved. How mathematical Genius Discovered the Language of Symmetry, Simon & Schuster, New York, 2005.

 

The following technical & scientific subjects haunted me in the last few decades:

 

Meantime, anxious about non technical matters, I wrote the following texts:

 

Personal Notes

Politics

The following political problems harassed me in my short political involvement as member of Petre Roman Government 2:

  • Educational Reform: my unsuccessful fight with the conservative reform of the Romanian society in 1990-1991

 

Civic

My civic involvement is a sequel of my short politic adventure. Resulted some sporadic actions and opinions referring to the (too) perennial Romanian problems:

  • iDemocracy project (paper) is going now toward iConsensus project (the first document, prepared with Mihai Spăriosu, is comming soon. Meantime see this: SYNC).
  • How to make the most appropriate distinction between instruction, training and education in the Romanian educational policy. See an uneducated opinion in: "Învățământul la orizontul 2020" published in România 2020, Ed. Compres, 1998.
  • Do we expect the professional ethos to trigger improvement in our society? A preliminary answer in the short inaugural statement drafted as board member of IPID (Institutul de Proiecte pentru Inovație și Dezvoltare): "Dezvoltare Integrativă & Ethos Profesional"
  • In order to increase the chance of the young inventors to promote their ideas I co-initiated and I'm supporting I-CUBE as member in the advisory board.
