What Does an Interesting Theory Look Like?   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8

Interesting. The word says a lot and nothing at all. We often leverage it to describe people, projects, and ideas that we don’t quite know what to make of yet—or notions too complicated to be quickly defined.
