Do you still have a Blockbuster Video near you? Me neither. Apparently they still have ~800 stores across the country. Well, they did, until announcing that they'll be closing 300 of them soon. Obviously, their business plan doesn't work any more (though I feel bad particularly for senior citizens who would in general much prefer to rent in a store than stream online).
In the sciences, we are now uniquely priviledged to sit side by side with
the giants on whose shoulders we stand.
