At the end of April, I was invited to speak at Yale University at "The power of disruptive ideas" conference. The conference was an intense two-day exchange on various topics ranging from fractals to astronomy, finance, psychology etc. I loved it.

It was good to finally attend talks by (and sometimes have the opportunity to chat with) Robert Shiller, Benoit Mandelbrot, Peter Salovey, Michael Cappello and Laurie Santos. On day one, I participated to a panel discussion on neuroeconomics with Shane Frederick, Keith Chen and Laurie.

Laurie's work on how monkeys behave and make decisions in economic settings is remarkable (click here to visit her website), I hope you can take a couple of minutes to watch her recent talk at TED Global.
