Brett is fundamentally a creative - a musician first, and one who has a nuanced view on consumer psychology and cognition. Viewing tech news through his lens is always refreshing & insightful.

The best tech products are built with social science in mind. Social Studies has become my go-to for getting the real deal on what's happening with the latest technology products and trends.
Greg Isenberg - Founder, Late Checkout
This is Twitter curation at its best. Social Studies is packed with wisdom and diverse perspectives that take minutes to read, but might have taken hours to find yourself.
