Alon is one of my scientific heroes. For anyone (like myself) who would otherwise be inclined to dismiss this as a bunch of hippy woo, know that Alon is a total beast.

Probably not a nurturing enough question to ask, but is there a transcript?


Also, this couldn't have come at a better time for me, as I'm trying to modulate my response to my undergrad research student's productivity somewhere along the axis of:

"Take all the time you need to resolve your personal problems: a happy scientist is a productive scientist"


"The Beatings will Continue Until Morale Improves"
