Lineages of Creativity in Research

Nature article looks at the 'Phd-Family' trees of scientists and in particularly mathematicians.  I don't find it too surprising that there are a small number of lineages.  Like the degrees of of separation findings.  But I do like the analysis and visualization included.  Reminds me of work we did to understand how creativity moved through the enterprise using social media and email trails.  In particular one of the reasons for us being an early user of email was to ease interaction in R&D and with outside researchers.
