Most of my advances were by mistake. You uncover what is when you get rid of what isn't.
R. Buckminster Fuller
In fact what I would like to see is thousands of computer scientists let loose to do whatever they want. That's what really advances the field.

Justice is not to be taken by storm. She is to be wooed by slow advances.
The most important advances, the qualitative leaps, are the least predictable. Not even the best scientists predicted the impact of nuclear physics, and everyday consumer items such as the iPhone would have seemed magic back in the 1950s.
It is well known that Beauty does not look with a good grace on the timid advances of Humour.
W. Somerset Maugham
Funeral by funeral, theory advances.
Technology advances at exponential rates, and human institutions and societies do not. They adapt at much slower rates. Those gaps get wider and wider.

I often compare open source to science. To where science took this whole notion of developing ideas in the open and improving on other peoples' ideas and making it into what science is today and the incredible advances that we have had. And I compare that to witchcraft and alchemy, where openness was something you didn't do.
Modern medicine, for all its advances, knows less than 10 percent of what your body knows instinctively.
From stoplights to skyscrapers, turn anywhere in civilization and you will see imagination at work. It's in our inventions, advances and remedies and how a single parent masterminds each day. Imagination is boundless, surrounds us and resides in us all.
Geoffrey S. Fletcher
Additionally, Smart Irrigation Month serves to recognize advances in irrigation technology and practices that produce not only more but also higher quality plants with less water.
