We’re excited to post the next three talks in our new Best of the Web series! Today, we hear from a computer scientist who was battling pancreatic cancer, a neuroscientist and primatologist who learned about human nature by studying animals, and a man whose response to losing his life savings was unexpectedly hopeful.
