H. Holden Thorp on “When Hyping Technology Is a Crime”

Science editor-in-chief to speak at UD

H. Holden Thorp, Editor-in-Chief of Science

Dear Commons Community,

H. Holden Thorp, Editor-in-Chief of Science, has an opinion piece in this week’s edition reviewing the recent case against Elizabeth Holmes, the former CEO of Theranos.  The main theme of his commentary is that the culture of science innovation contributed to the problems surrounding Holmes downfall.  And that “fledgling companies promoting technological and scientific advances have relied too much on style and not on substance.”  He comments that the Holmes case exemplifies relying on hype!

Thorp’s entire piece is below.
