network theory

The New York times had an article yesterday on Network Theory. The latest fad to grip the world of science (similar to, say, Chaos theory in the mid-80s). As I have been doing some network theory research as part of my PhD, I know that it's more than just a fad. But the hype is simply disgusting. It banalizes the topic, pretends it's a solution to all problems, and people that are not involved in it end up getting completely the wrong idea. I just wish we could get over this human trait of pretending that we have found the final answer to whatever. There are no final answers, there is no destination.

There is only the journey.
