Autism, left frontotemporal dementia, and savantism resulting from brain injury have all been associated with deficits in the left hemisphere of the brain. Though the left brain/right brain skill dichotomy is an oversimplification, they do specialize in function, says Treffert. The left brain, which is dominant in most people, is more heavily involved in language and reason, while the right brain plays a bigger role in visuospatial and artistic ability. Scientists theorize that in savants, limitations in left-brain function allow the right brain to compensate. In Snyder and Chi’s study, they applied stimulation to suppress brain activity in the left anterior temporal lobe while simultaneously exciting activity in the right anterior temporal lobe.

This month, 26-year-old Nathan Contos of Santa Cruz, California, was arrested in charges of molesting a 14-year-old girl he met on MySpace while allegedly posing as a teenager himself.

Meanwhile, even as companies like Red Hat and Mulesoft attract multibillion-dollar acquisitions, other open source projects struggle to find sustainable business models to pay developers to maintain projects. When popular but unprofitable projects go unmaintained, it can lead to security issues, such as critical vulnerabilities discovered in 2014 in OpenSSL, used by nearly every site that processes credit card transactions, and Bash, which is included in many operating systems. In November, a popular open source module was used to spread malware.
