The biggest brains that ever surfed

Q: What do you get when you mix big brains and salt water?

A: The Center for Ocean Solutions--a new place where smart people work to save our oceans.

A joint project of Stanford University, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, the Center for Ocean Solutions will boldly tackle the world's pressing ocean problems and provide solutions.

And not just wonky ideas, they intend to go all the way into making the world a better place. What a fun and useful thing for a bunch of professors and other scientists and lawyers to do. Thanks folks!

Oh yeah, let's not forget that they're starting with $25 million from the Packard Foundation, so we can expect great things quickly.
