He knows what he’s talking about because he’s about to host the 2nd annual Macstock Conference and Expo outside of Chicago this weekend. Steve and I were supposed to go but since our grandson’s arrival is any day now, we’re going to miss it. However, Mike is going to bring me in on the big screen to do my presentation on why you should consider using Apple Photos.

CCATP #441 Dr. Maryanne Garry on Cognitive Biases, Learning and Aging

MaryanneDr. Maryanne Garry, Professor of Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington joins us again to talk about two really interesting books about cognitive psychology. I enjoy talking to Dr. Garry because she reads real studies that follow scientific processes, where we mean those that explain studies which can be falsified (which are the only real theories).
Science as Falsification was introduced by Karl R. Popper if you want to learn more about it.
