Quote of the Day: MIT Edition

The great thing about MIT is that it's driven by ideas.

But the bad thing about MIT is that not matter how awful your idea is, someone will be excited about it as long it involves technology and your elevator pitch includes buzzwords like "leadership," "entrepreneurship," or "sustainability."

(If you have a good idea that can't be summarized in an elevator pitch, doesn't involve technology, and doesn't use buzz words, it might get ignored. I wonder how J-PAL ever got approved?)
