I am a strong believer in the value and power of individual effort, and the rejection of appeals to authority as the standard for determining the correctness of what someone has to say. While there are a lot of cranks and incompetents in the world mucking up the waters of science, not all independent researchers are among them, and not all of them lie outside the mainstream. I believe the merit of one's work trumps the august presence of sheepskin and conformance to orthodoxy.
