  10. 10. Image  by  rarvesen  “Its  like  a  babng  average  in  baseball.  No  one  hits  a  home  run  every  @me,  but  by  understanding  the  science  of  hibng  you  can  boost  your  average.”    -­‐Jonah  Berger

  16. 16. Image  by  RachelEllen  …  “it  doesnt  fully  majer  who  you  are  or  how  many  connec@ons  you  have,  but  what  youre  saying  rela@ve  to  the  exis@ng  conversa@on  is  what  really  majers  in  spreading  knowledge  online.”    -­‐Jared  Keller
