Keep in mind we are still trying to support our good friend Brad Smith and asking people to help them with their medical bills.. We will continue to update you on Brad’s condition and we appreciate all your help with donations.

Josh Klein is described as “the quintessential hacker – a cross-disciplinary, pattern recognizing polymath who takes his greatest joy from combining the unexpected and seeing the result work in new and better ways.” This month we discuss how he has taken his research in animal behavior and applied it to human studies. Topics include: How do you study animal behaviors? What can you apply to humans from that? How can you “train” people to react the way you want them to?

Fun experiments with co-workers. And much much more!
