Science du jour...
NYT has this article on the "science of services", whatever that means.
An ex-colleague of mine wonders: why is this article in the Business section of NYT?
I won't whine (in this post, anyway) about why this is not a science, but will merely lament NYT's lack of critical reporting: there's no discussion of operations research, industrial engineering, "management science", and other mathematical/engineering/business school disciplines (sciences and non-sciences) that subsume this field of deep scientific inquiry many times over.
