Applying Passion to Create Knowledge
Source: Washington Post, Jun 2006
Ray Kurzweil: The world is increasingly based on knowledge. As I said, knowledge comes in many forms: art, science, technology… We are the only species that creates knowledge that we pass down from generation to generation, and the amount of knowledge is growing exponentially. Yet it still takes passion to create knowledge of value. So children need to be herded into a scientific career despite it being a scientific age. The key is to find what you have a passion for and pursue that. Having said that, it is useful for everyone to have an appreciation for technology as it is enhancing every field of human endeavor.
