Talks/seminars/conferences around Cambridge in October 2013

"Boosting the brain: how far should we go?" at Queen's Building Lecture Theatre, Emmanuel College
The best of this month was  #007 Boosting the brain: how far should we go?: my key takeaway is that it is hard to differentiate technology and medicine from a perspective of enhancement of our capabilities.

The second best was #001 Beating the Odds: Growing Biobusinesses Today: my key takeaway is that her/his spike in one area, neither her/his capability nor communication, makes her/him inspiring. In other words, the integrity between who and what is important.
