Our Daily TED

Do you know TED? TED talks are presented by amazing speakers on a wonderful diversity of topics. Academics, artists, humanitarians, the talks are inspiring, informative and not-too-long (less than 20 minutes).

I have made a goal to listen to one TED talk a day for a month, in the hopes that I'll do it every other (how's that for optimistic realism?). To help motivate me to stick with it, I'll post the video on this blog.

I show TED talks periodically to my class, and the one I'm sharing today I will show to my class tomorrow, as we are talking about DNA replication. This talk has to do with using DNA to build things.

Sadly, it doesn't look like you can view the video within the blog, but clicking on the link should take you there.



  1. My two favorite TED talks: Hans Roesling and Jill Bolte Taylor. If you haven't already seen them, check it out.

    I'm in the mad dash preparing kids for the AP statistics exam the first week in May. After that, life will calm down a bit and I can make a point of catching up with you onna phone.

  2. I love the Jill Bolte Taylor TED talk, and will have to check out Hans Roesling. I love TED, too.
