Phil Hansen: Embrace the shake
I love this talk and its a great way to view how perspective changes things and why embracing our uniqueness is something we don't do enough of.

Juan Enriquez: Will our kids be a different species?
Wow. Thats interesting. Never heard of Silicon Valley Syndrome. I know that Einstein didnt talk until very late as did a number of great physicists. I probably saw that SciAm article. I pretty much read all of the ones that have topics around mind or quantum mechanics. I hate labels. Fascinating insight. Thanks. Don't suppose you are going to TEDActive in Feb?
