A vending machine for crows

I can't say that I was all that impressed with Joshua Klein's TED talk itself, but the idea of being able to use crows' intelligence and tenacity to produce interesting new behavior is a neat one. For instance, I kind of liked the vision of a murder of crows cleaning up the streets in exchange for peanuts... Plus, the footage he shows of clever crow behavior is worth watching the rest of the talk.
