In 1927, 17 of the 29 attendees who attended the Solvay Conference were or became Nobel Prize winners, including Marie Curie, who alone among them, had won Nobel Prizes in two separate scientific disciplines.
What would it look like if there were conferences devoted to outstanding preeminent open problems in today’s world?
Or does it already exist and I don’t know about it?
No matter….. think about your open problems.
List them out, find your tribe and start talking about your problems. You can find one person or have a tribe of 29 people (and they don’t have to be physicists).
The key is to start talking and people who care WILL listen.
