Curious about me?
Curiosity is an emotion that causes natural inquisitive behavior such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in human and many animal species. The term can also be used to denote the behavior itself being caused by the emotion of curiosity. As this emotion represents a drive to know new things, curiosity is the fuel of science and all other disciplines of human study.

Hello there, Michael! A man with curious brain.. (little girly punch on your shoulder) 🙂 couldn’t find your email anywhere.. maybe because I wasn’t supposed to.. or maybe I should start listening to my oculist. either way, I wanted to show you this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtgyhAC5Z5w (p.s. their video is great too). Now that’s what I call positive 🙂
Hello Michael! How dare you be on holiday??? I’m desperately waiting for your last discovery… 😉
Your blog is very, very, very smart, nice etc… Just keep on your way! You made me curious about things I never only suspected in arts – any sort. Thank you so much for that! I keep talking of your blog around me eversince I discovered the Curious Brain.
I’m very sensible about the variety and the internationality of your selection. A hymn to human kind in its best aspect.
Greetings from France!

I stumbled on this website while I was watching short films on vimeo. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time on this website and this is the first time I’ve ever wanted to say something to someone I’d only seen of online. This is amazing and I absolutely adore your taste.

So keep up the great job and i’m looking forward to more new stuff 🙂

Hello, Michael !
I’ve been following your blog for almost a year now. I’m a senior college student and my major is PR and Advertising. After the first year i realized that i like advertising way better than PR, so i really started looking into it. I can’t say how in handy your website came and how many times i looked for info here for my projects or simply for my own thirst for advertising knowledge. Thank you for this blog and for all the work you put into it and keep up being curious and making others curious as well.
Roxana from Romania
Great blog, i am trully addicted to it. Since i discovered it a couple of weeks ago, i had to go through 130. Looking forward to catch up with the rest soon.
Eddy from Spain

Some days before you have cracked the 1.000 pages. Now (end of may) only 931? Can you tell me why? Have you deleted some entries?

Hey Michael, stumbled on your blog as one does and didn’t stumble back off it for an hour – now that’s engagement. Love it. May I borrow the image of the bicycle for our new site (with the usual acknowledgements of course)?
