What brings you to 38minutes?
The problem of communicating scientific knowledge to large populations is an intricate one. I believe that digital media can play an important part in helping people understand how science works and involving them in the process.

As a cognitive psychologist I collect data from peoples behaviour. I think it is only right that we complete the cycle by presenting these findings honestly and in a way that people can understand.

New media on the terraces

I had been talking to my friend Chris Willshaw after Ewans 4ip presentation at Edinburgh Uni business school last night and had mentioned how essentially a football crowd is a 'Flash Mob' in waiting. Lo and behold today I find that a group of researchers from the University of Glasgow are set to revolutionise football terraces with the help of mobile technology.

Gladwell's analysis of clapping in large crowds in Wisdom of the Crowds blew me away.
