Regina Dugan says there’s a lesson in that. As she told a TED conference last year, “You should be nice to nerds. In fact I’d go so far as to say if you don’t already have a nerd in your life you should get one.”

Dugan is a huge fan of the nerd. She used to run DARPA … helped create self-driving cars

none of the men and women I just mentioned do much of anything alone. As Parviz pointed out at a recent TED talk, “I would hazard a guess that the era of the solo star scientist is probably over.”

Today’s big problems are so complex — so interdisciplinary — that all of these people make their marks working in teams.
