I would like to make a comment concerning "long standing experts" and young people with innovative ideas. I think this ignores the situation of women who often don't have the opportunity to start their academic pursuits at a young age. I am older than 45 and still working on my doctorate. I am not young, but still have innovative ideas. I don't have a long standing reputation because I haven't even had a chance to start yet, since I am just supporting myself and working on my doctorate when possible. So please don't forget us older ladies who are late bloomers who are finishing our doctorates in our 40's, 50's, 60's and even later. I have tons of original ideas and no funding to work on any of them. We can be just as innovative as young people. It's one's state of mind, not one's birth date. Linda
