@Google Presents Michael Nielsen: Reinventing Discovery

This change is being driven by powerful new cognitive tools, enabled by the internet, which are greatly accelerating scientific discovery.

It’s important to remember that subtraction has different rules from addition.

For example, when you add up numbers, it doesn’t matter what order you add them up in. So 6 + 4 is exactly the same as 4 + 6. The result is 10 in both cases.
