PDF Slides for Steve Hsu's talk
Genes and Intelligence study looking at genes of individuals with IQ > 145: High IQ volunteers needed
This talk by Hsu is likely to be a very big deal, simply due to its clarity of presentation, vast quantity of reliable evidence, and its venue.

It is an issue that must be confronted by society, and the sooner the better.
