    Hi Archinect!

    David Brooks, conservative columnist for the New York Times, spoke at the GSD this evening as part of the Kennedy School's 'Science and Democracy' series. The talk was called “Politics, the Brain, & Human Nature,” and covered many of the talking points from Brooks' recent book, The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character and Achievement. It was much the same presentation that Brooks gave at TED, except that there were also three respondents (Max Bazerman from the business school, David Kennedy from the law school, and Steven Pinker from the department of psychology).

    AND except for the fact that tonight, my friend Matt and I got answers to questions that we asked of Brooks, and live-blogged everything at

    I'm proud. This is the first time I felt like a reporter!

    Check it out, and thanks for reading!

About this Blog

This blog was most active from 2009-2013. Writing about my experiences and life at Harvard GSD started out as a way for me to process my experiences as an M.Arch.I student, and evolved into a record of the intellectual and cultural life of the Cambridge architecture (and to a lesser extent, design/technology) community, through live-blogs. These days, I work as a data storyteller (and blogger at in San Francisco, and still post here once in a while.
