Relation Between Medieval Renaissance and Today's Open Knowledge Dissemination

Authors: Subhajit Ganguly
Comments: 2 Pages.

Time has shown us how zero control by a handful of individuals over the society and complete control of the community, as a whole, over itself brings about positive changes. Less the control by individuals or groups and more the control of the complete set of individuals, more is the positive change. The history of the printing press is a case in point. While history made a mockery of the control-freaks, it proved right the few individuals, who believed in the intellectual capacity of the masses. Intellectual Nazism should be a thing of the past and we should move away from such self-defeating practices.

Einstein a Brilliant Thief

Authors: Gabriela M. Atanasiu
Comments: 3 Pages.

In 1999, the scientific and historical analysis on the birth of the theory of relativity led to the clear conclusion that the true creator of the theory was Henry Poincaré and Einstein's work was a plagiarism. It is difficult to understand how Einstein elaborated a theory of this magnitude in just a few weeks as he hadn’t previously published anything in this regard.
