  1. I heard a Planet Money podcast recently on Amazon's Mechanical Turk program. The podcast hosts interviewed people who do tiny tasks for pennies apiece. I tweeted about it and got a response from people who help to make those workers' jobs better. What this shows is that research always happens in a community--and experts are usually willing to share what they know!
  2. Because the people I corresponded with were so helpful, I asked where I could learn more.
