Research Debt
Developing good abstractions, notations, visualizations, and so forth, is improving the user interfaces for ideas. This helps both with understanding ideas for the first time and with thinking clearly about them. Conversely, if we can’t explain an idea well, that’s often a sign that we don’t understand it as well as we could.

How to Write Email with Military Precision
In the military, a poorly formatted email may be the difference between mission accomplished and mission failure. During my active duty service, I learned how to structure emails to maximize a mission’s chances for success. Since returning from duty, I have applied these lessons to emails that I write for my corporate job, and my missives have consequently become crisper and cleaner, eliciting quicker and higher-quality responses from colleagues and clients. Here are three of the main tips I learned on how to format your emails with military precision:

Research Debt
The insidious thing about research debt is that it’s normal. Everyone takes it for granted, and doesn’t realize that things could be different. For example, it’s normal to give very mediocre explanations of research, and people perceive that to be the ceiling of explanation quality. On the rare occasions that truly excellent explanations come along, people see them as one-off miracles rather than a sign that we could systematically be doing better.

Research Debt
Discussion of Debt and Distillation: A number of mathematicians have discussed what we call research distillation. Some great comments and references are collected in this MathOverflow thread — I’d draw particular Thurston’s account of accidentally killing a field by drowning it in research debt in section 6 of [19].
Other nice thoughts in this space include the idea of an “open exposition problem” [20], Grothendieck’s “rising sea” approach to mathematics [21], and recent calls to value conceptual progress in CS more [22].
