If you want to be useful... go metric

I just got off the phone with a US-based scientific organization.

We were talking about how to make their data more useful to others.

I said "make it push-button-easy to convert all your data into metric values."

"Oh no, that's way beyond our boundaries." :(

Bottom Line: The lingua franca of the scientific world is English and metric. Get with the program, USA.
