Should we continue to cede our R&D activities to corporations? One of the strengths of this country after WWII was the education that so many were able to get, which tied directly into the United States becoming the technical powerhouse that we have become.
I am happy that corporations continue to pour money into research, but I believe that the federal government should also up their expenditures so that we can maintain our technological edge.
The University of Florida sees Gator Green in Gatorade and other inventions, so it's easy for them to want More. Can't blame them. However, my Florida educational experience was one of the best I've had, because I was learning in a no-research, we're-here-to-learn junior college instead of a mammoth research-driven machine. What's priority one? Research, or education? Inquiring minds want to know.
