It may be the best discussion topic ever. The Behavioral Grooves is a non-profit monthly meetup of like-minded, behavioral-science nerds excited by application of good science in the real world. It was founded by Kurt Nelson, PhD and Tim Houlihan to bring those who want to share their experience together with those who want to learn.

We talked about chaos monkeys, constructionism, how important it is for Neil Young to know G-C-D chords (and to know what to do with them) and to do things that focus our attention on things that make people smile.
