My name is Jim Doty. I know many of you, uh, I'm the founder and director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. It's really a pleasure to be here with you this evening in the continuation of our ongoing Ming w lectureship. Before introducing our first speaker, I would actually like to acknowledge the presence of the Ming component of the Ming Wu Lectureship Ming, would you mind standing up?

For all of you who know Ming, uh, you all know that he goes by Ming and he's the jolly good fellow at Google. He's been an incredible supporter of our work here at Stanford. And also, uh, a dear friend, and to give him a plug, he has a new book, uh, called Search Inside Yourself, and it was on the New York Times bestseller and Amazon bestseller list.
