I found this compelling and intriguing set of questions via Ethan Zuckerman’s blog:
- If you had the opportunity to do so, what problems would you solve with a $5 million dollar budget?
- What about $50 million dollars?
- And $500 million?
It’s a fun way to get a handle on the scale of various problems, and also a fun way to sort out which problems you’d work on, given proper resources.
I’m still thinking about what my answers are. Will post them here!
