Wanted, a young genius to be the next Charles Darwin?

Stimulating article in the Daily Telegraph yesterday by Leicester’s very own David Attenborough on who and how the next Darwin might ’emerge’ (to use an evolutionary term).

My comment didn’t pass the moderator’s test, but I’ll cheat and publish it here:

“Sorry David but the next scientific revolution will not be televised. By the nature of where contemporary science is at, and where the internet is at, means the next Darwin is most likely to be found right now on Facebook or Twitter experimenting with their science and sharing their failures & breakthroughs.”

Actually I’ve taken the opportunity to add the last bit about experimenting & sharing. and this co-incidental pic from 2007…
