TED

DB regularly watches Diggnation and I often watch with him.  In the last edition Kevin Rose talked about being invited to attend TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) and meeting the greatest minds and leaders of science and technology.  We’ve been watching 2-3 of the TEDTalks every night.  TEDTalks are 20 minute talks by amazing people on unexpected topics.

We’ve watched Jill Bolte Taylor talk about her Stroke of Insight.
Jeff Hawkins (who I used to work for, kind of) talk about studying the brain to make computers.
The guy who worked on Benjamin Button and showed us how it was done.
And many more even more interesting stuff.  We’ve been mainly watching the Brain section.

Check it out.  It’s even better science than watching House.
