A person who is more concerned with his product or passion to worry about how to make money. First coined by Stephen Colbert to describe Brian Greene, a theoretical physicist, and his organization, World Science U.
Stephen: "Does this cost anything?"
Brian: "No it's free."
Stephen: "How does the university make its money? Off the football team?"
Brian: "That's a good question. I don't know, I don't think about those things. I just want to get good material out there to the world."
Stephen: "You're a theoretical physicist and a theoretical businessman!"
