Science Talk

From the assorted stuff blog site:

Our academic system rewards people who know a lot of stuff, and generally we call those people “smart”. But at the end of the day, who do you want, the person who can figure stuff out that they’ve never seen before, or the person who can rattle off a bunch of facts? At the end of the day, I want the person who can figure stuff out.  Neil DeGrasse Tyson

An interesting discussion between Stephen Colbert and Neil DeGrasse. It's a bit long, but a good listen, especially if you are interested in the discusion about where science and education should go.
