While I’m at it, I’ll also mention that I my neuroscience news brand,
The Connectome, has a breaking news website, a SoundCloud podcast, a YouTube channel, and a few thousand fans on Facebook and Twitter and Google Plus. If you want to learn more about the mysteries of your brain (and, I mean, who doesn’t, really) you should check that stuff out.

I spent a year in Turkey, where I made this documentary about the anti-government protests there — and what happened after them.

I’ve given talks at Northeastern University and TEDxAJU. Those were a long time ago. I don’t look like that anymore.

Even longer ago than that, I was the editor-in-chief of a neo-Victorian art and fiction magazine called The Willows — which I created and launched myself, and ran with a very capable team of artists and editors.
