Robin Ince: Science versus wonder - TED Talk

------




I find such solace in these ideas.  We are all so large.  We are all so small.  And this brilliant machine that  we see rattling around can teach us a lot yet.


TED describes itself here: "...a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design."
Visit www.TED.com and RSS them if you'd like to keep track of new releases.


On the theme, teaching the wonders of science is the theme behind Richard Dawkins' new book
The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True
I highly recommend it.  It's illustrated by one of my favorite artists too, Dave McKean.
