Every month, the Santa Clara Branch Library hosts a TED discussion group where we
get together and view a set of TED and TEDx videos focusing on a central theme, followed by a discussion afterwards. Future topics and videos can and will be chosen by the group. Have a favorite TED talk? Share it! Have a topic you want to discuss? Let us know! This group follows the mission of the TED organization; a "community welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world." Come be a part of an engaging and welcoming discussion where you don’t have to read the book before you attend!
Total Number of Attendees: 4
Ted videos watched and discussed:
Dan Barber: How I fell in love with a fish; TED 2010
Caleb Harper: This computer will grow your food in the future; TED Global, Geneva 2015
Homaru Cantu & Ben Roche: Cooking as alchemy; TED 2011
Two new members came to discuss our appropriately chosen topic for this week (it being the week of Thanksgiving). They were especially impressed with Dan Barber's talk on the fish farm in Spain and the concept of "extensive" rather than "intensive" farming. Our new members were also from the Midwest and have hear of Moto; the restaurant in Chicago owned and run by Homaru Cantu and Ben Roche, so were intrigued with the inside scoop on how they come up with their inventive dishes. We also discussed Freight Farming happening on the east coast, much like Caleb Harper's computerized growing systems. All in all, it was a very lively and appreciated evening program here at the library! More to come!
