Sometimes, looking at these I believe that 18 minutes (NOT the amount of stuff missing from the Nixon tapes*) will someday save the world.

Me, I can’t think without doodling on paper or iPad. (Of course, there are those who would say I don’t think anyway.)

*[ed note: of course this talk is only six minutes, as are most of the talks on TED.com, but the time limit for the TED conference speakers is 18 minutes. I wonder if they were thinking of the “missing minutes” when they came up with that time limit…]
