Science Singles Social 40up - TED Again

Once again, we'll be kicking off the evening with a TED Talk to start the discussion for the evening.

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.
