Glastonbury tickets when on sale at 8pm this evening, 6 hours later i & many thousands of others are still redailing the number and attempting to connect to the website. 🙁
This sort of reminded me of something..
In an experiment by Kelleher (1958) chimpanzees had to press a key 125 times in order to receive a single token, and when they had collected 50 tokens they were allowed to push then all into a slot in order to receive food. In this experiment, therefore, the effect of the token reinforcers was sufficiently strong that they were able to reinforce a sequence of more than 6000 responses.
