My son has “turned me on” to a very interesting site called TED (“Technology, Entertainment, Design”).  The site features lectures by noted scientists in fields as diverse as , physics, evolutionary biology, mathematics, oceanography and astronomy, and other folks who are tops in their fields and/or have something worth listening to, people like Richard Branson, Gordon Brown, Isabel Allende and Bono.

Tonight I watched a fascinating talk about marine biology in my hometown of Monterey, California.  It’s really worth seeing.

TED “Ideas worth spreading”, “Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world”
