  1. That was great. Very insightful.

  2. First of all I’m going to have to start by saying my friend turned me on to TED talks and ever since I have absolutely loved them. Some of the best talks and information in this day and age.

    That being said, I am so so so so glad that they got Mr. Glaser to do one of the talks. I find it ironic and funny at the same time that throughout the video he talks about how he begins to “explain” his work even though it was a contradiction to his previous teachings. But hey, you have to learn the rules in order to break them huh?

    Awesome video and an amazing ending to an otherwise beautifully spoken TED talk! Thanks for the post, much appreciated :D
