The device had all the hallmarks of sugar-daddy science: It looked amazing, and nothing added up.
Agricultural and food-systems design is my wheelhouse. The food computer is nice , I told the Media Lab. But if you really want to knock things loose, hire me.
I already had a thriving business. No harm, no foul. The Media Lab took sugar-daddy science to a new level. Its One Laptop per Child project was a notorious failure. One set was purported to show how biodesign could help wearers survive harsh conditions on other planets.
The clothes are, however, entirely nonfunctional, and were photographed on skinny, half-naked women. How do we stop sugar-daddy science?
The only long-term solution is to bring back federal funding so researchers can stop relying on donations from the beneficiaries of widening inequality. Writers such as Anand Giridharadas have written relentlessly about reviving public research and other social services. This, however, has to be fixed through the democratic process, which will take time.
So what can research institutions do to ensure the integrity of their work? Basic oversight, like financial audits, can go a long way. The Boston-based nonprofit Partners in Health is a model here. It tackles problems that eluded medical charities for decades, such as drug-resistant tuberculosis, by taking on underlying issues—like the malnutrition that makes people vulnerable to TB in the first place—instead of just prescribing drugs. Instead of attempting to build a food computer, a lab could identify a more immediate need, such as cheap, easy-to-clean food-handling equipment, and invent that.
No one should fear losing prestige by fixing real problems. Finally, research needs a clear mission. The pure pursuit of science, freed from worldly concerns like politics and money, is a seductive illusion. Writer: John Herzfeld. Coming of Age Movies. Share this Rating Title: Daddy 5.
