Regina Dugan hops from DARPA to Google

Seen here in her final days as Director of DARPA, and feeling the pull of the Google boys in the audience.


“If you don’t have a nerd in your life, you should get one. I’m just saying.”


“Nerds change the world. If you can remove the fear of failure, the impossible becomes possible.”


“I often ask: what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? It’s a terrifying question actually.”


“We all have nerd power. Sometimes we just forget.”


I spoke with her a bit, and she has a keen interest in cortical modeling, quantum computers, syn bio, and ultra-cheap satellites.


This all jives nicely with the Google Master Plan.
