Subject: [ExI] question for Max or anyone


>…Is money being spent wisely in the tech industry?  Are they spending too much on things that will make a lot of money as compared to something that will really advance knowledge?  What are they not spending enough money on?

Industry’s job is to make money.  It isn’t to really advance knowledge.  Academia’s job is to really advance knowledge, not really to make a lot of money.  In that light, define your term “wisely.”
