The TEdXTuttle program was :

- The BBC's Maggie Philbin leading us into a history of the worlds of tomorrow, via some fascinating clips from the 60's, 70's and 80's of what people thought the hot hot things of those past futures would be.

- Technology stream - we covered Robotics with P W Sanger scary Military Robots video , Mobile Multimedia with the amazing 6th Sense and - on the advice of Tuttle member Sarah Blow - we asked Rachel Armstrong to come and talk about the fascinating area of living architecture.

- Sustainability stream - Jared Diamond's Collapse to keep the Collapsonomics crew happy, set against Willie Smits amazing talk on how to rebuild a wrecked ecosystem, and Tuttle founder Llloyd Davis on curating a sustainable online/offline social network

- Social media stream - first, Ben Walker looked at the dynamics of Twitter via words and music, Clay Shirky's video looked at Social Media's potential, Mat Morrison gave a talk on how Social influence is measured, and we rounded off with Dan Pink's video on how open problems cannot be solved by carrot and stick incentives

Maggie then closed with some hilarious videos of daft inventions from times of yore (see youtube video above)
