My TED story

I started following TED Talk podcast since its first launch. It's very hard to keep up with so many amazing development in vast variety of works -it is overwhelmingly inspiring. It's TED talks that led me to rethink my own path, my true passion. It cultivated my own growth by looking up to so many incredible people. I learn from them constantly. Now I am willing to emerge from hiding and just being a passive audience, and hoping to participate into more active conversations and the progression of the whole world at large.

LIVE CHAT with Mike Matas: Monday, May 2nd, 1PM-2:30PM EST *UPDATE: Extended through May 6th*
Mike, you are making reading fun again. As you said, the most important thing is content rather than the technology. For different content, different technology can be used. As a scientist, majority of our publishing experience is to deal with Journals rather than books. Do you envision a future for PushPopPress to reach massive journal client population? What is more, is once a scientific paper can be fun, more kids are going to have a "cool" image of scientist. As we all know, America's general public has quite low respect for scientists, partly, is ourselves to blame. Because we are poor in publicizing ourselves...Your platform, if it can help play a part in that, would be so amazing- and change the whole scientific community's image.
