    Important information needs to be shared with all those who can benefit. Only then can a discovery fulfill its potential for good. Yet researchers often communicate in silos. This means they commune with people in the same role (like researcher to researcher), field (such as economist to economist), or at the same site (like working at the same university) when sharing knowledge, seeking knowledge, making decisions, and collaborating. The way information is shared has changed dramatically in the past decade, and researchers should be aware of these changes, which bring new opportunities to spread findings. Give a TED Talk, get on NPR, have reporters come to you, become a book author (without the usual time investment)… there are so many ways to share your research, and many take very little time or effort.
