He was on a panel he described as "the Lions Den" discussing issues of intellectual property, and he was the lone dissenting voice on the panel. Mitterand had commented that copyright debates had grown so calm now that everyone agreed upon the ground rules. Barlow shook things up for once."
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
