Hi - From 1st hand personal knowledge from CERN in the early 1990s I can
tell you with confidence that the genesis of the WWW was specifically in
response to the behavioral challenges faced by top physicists to
collaborate, to share or even cooperate. Thus, the WWW was an unintended
consequence of the idiosyncratic personalities and unique behaviors of a
large group of  theoretical physicists working in labs in Switzerland. Maybe
that's one thing that qualifies for something, ".they done to advance any
theoretical explanations of human behavior." Or not.  -j

But what have the physicists contributed to theoretical advancements in
study of human behavior?  Besides the claim of physicists
fathering/mothering the advent of SNA which is flawed st best, what have
they done to advance any theoretical explanations of human behavior,
particularly at the individual level? Just asking?
