d to have you now we're going to die very deep into the world of habits and how people can use us for their business, but before we get going, I just want to ask a general question. What is it about habits that this kind of made you dedicate so much time and resource is to the subject? What is it about it that intrigues, right? So my last company was the intersection of gaming and advertising and the's to industries that are really dependent, let's, face it on mind control. I can admit that now, so now that that that I learned many of these techniques and I saw these techniques used a in and day out within these companies to change people's behaviour. What I wanted to do was to bring some of these techniques out to a wider audience so that people in all sorts of industries, not just gaming and advertising, can help change user behavior for good. Yeah, and that's, great, because we have people out there watching from all around the world who work in different industries, and they can take this and apply it to their business. So you're out there watching. Thanks so much for joining. We have a lot to learn, so near I'm gonna let you take it away. Thanks so much.
