Science Singles Social 40up Takes a Look at TED

To bring a science focus to the next Science Singles Social 40up event, we'll be kicking off the evening with a TED Talk to start the discussion.

For those not familiar with TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), it is a nonprofit devoted to "Ideas Worth Spreading." Their TED Talks have set a new standard for public communication about science and technology, among other things.

Do you have a favorite TED Talk? We welcome suggestions for the one we will feature at this meetup. Browse their library here and leave links to your recommendations in the comment section below. Remember, the topic should be science, technology, medicine or environment-related.

    The affair was fun and intereting. Thank you Kathleen. Perhaps at the next meeting, more time could be given to allow the men or women to go to other tables and meet more people.

    Sarah Caldwell's recommendation of "Hans Rosling: The best stats you've ever seen" is an excellent choice for kicking off this meetup. Run time is a little under 20 minutes. For those who haven't seen it, I believe you are in for a real treat.

  • Amit

    So is this listening to Hans Roling speaking or something else? Sorry, new to the group.
