[TIPS] More from Ted

I suddenly thought, "Why haven't I heard of new videos from Ted? I subscribe to it, after all." So, I went there to see if anything new had been added. I'm glad I did. LOTS of new videos have been added, so if you've not been there recently you should go back.
May I recommend a couple? This one is beautiful (even if his vocal inflections DO drive me up a wall): http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/40 - Life through photography.
Here, James Watson talks about how he and his partner discovered DNA: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/35
This one will fascinate you, too: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/76. The Bonobos - apes that write (and play Pacman).
And, Pilobolus performs a dance that merges dancing with biology here: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/24
You can enlarge the videos by clicking the icon in the top right corner above the video. Oh, and you'll want to subscribe to it when you're there, too.
