TED Talks: Publicizing Failure

This is very interesting and a rather blatant problem. Most of the time when you fail at something, you don't really want people to know if you can help it. When it comes to Medicine however, if a drug or treatment fails you should definitely know when it fails.

Now, we can take this with a grain of salt when it comes to Medicine. However I would take this one step further and remove this fear of failure altogether. One of the basic principles of science is Failure is always an option. Failure is often the most COMMON result of scientific hypothesis and experimentation. We cannot be afraid to fail. We must keep ourselves on the right track of learning from those failures. This is how we progress as an individual, and as a society.
