One of the most wonderful feelings in the works is the passion for the process, when nothing exists but the Author and the Idea. But our world could have a completely different view, if from time to time, the activities of the Author have not been adjusted by third-party factor, that is itself a side effect that changed not just the end result, but also provoked the creation of New. Amazing. Worth spreading.

We invite you to TEDxKharkiv 2016. Theme: "Side effect". About (non)random discoveries.
