    "Mathematician Jim Simons, the math Ph.D. and founder of Renaissance Technologies, doesn’t speak often, so it’s generally worth a watch/listen when he does. While he’s now retired and mostly talking up his current interests, there are tidbits in this recent MIT speech. I’m particularly fond of his argument that we need to put more money into teaching so not as many people drift off to “Google or Goldman Sachs”.
