Finding an Important Problem

There seems to be infinitely many problems in the world. The trick is finding one that is sufficiently interesting to focus a dissertation on. The hope is that it has the following qualities:
  • Should impact a diverse audience (more than just the geeks in the computer lab)
  • Should be scientific yet have a host of business applications
  • Would be nice if it were related, at least in part, to my previous work
  • To be continued...
