Quoted in National Academies Report

Last year, the National Academies of Science published a revisit to their seminal “Rising Above the Gathering Storm” report. In appendix A, they cite notable people regarding science and technology. On page 74, the report quotes from such luminaries as Bill Gates, Thomas Jefferson, Arne Duncan, Barack Obama, and apparently, me.

From the report:

“When someone tells you that ‘Oh, math is not really my thing,’ respond back, ‘and working at McDonald’s isn’t mine.’”

Danny Crichton, Stanford University Student

Considering my academic focus on science policy, I find this rather cool (and I like the company on the page).
