Great lecture by John Hawks.

I’ve been too snowed under to write anything interesting of late (despite having read dozens of terrific articles!), so I thought I would share this wonderful lecture by John Hawks. His stance on the speed of human evolution has been quite a paradigm changer. To those of you who believe that one of the defining features of modern Homo sapiens is a large brain, pay close attention to the early part of his lecture. Turns out your ancient ancestors may have put you to shame.

Enjoy!
