A Great Way to Think

This set of TED helps you to realize that things are not always what they seem and there is always more than one way to look at things. Some of these videos are better than others but overall they give a fresh perspective.


Visions of a Great Artist!!!

Deb Roy - Birth of a Word / Statistics

Deb Roy - Birth of a Word: Speaker is Warmly Engaging + artfully concise throughout; standing ovation= so deserved & endearing. Sublime example of rendering data from camera & computer 3D statistics modeling into higher purpose & hopeful potential ... effort from infant's first word to modeling ideas of word influences from (media) upon homes in a nation. Thank you for this "wow."
