Check it out-- a matchmaking sight for scholarly collaborators!

I think that this is fantastic in concept. But in addition to perhaps expanding the portfolio of online dating services, I think more thought is needed regarding how results are handled.

Our current rewards system, and outdated patent laws view new knowledge as individual achievements, not collaborative efforts, and not crediting "standing on the shoulders of giants" (and the work of multitudes of lower level employees) to reach an achievement.

The recent patent battle over CRISPR technology is a case in point: https://www.statnews.com/2017/02/15/crispr-patent-ruling/ is a case in point.
