This is a topic that the CLB has followed and, in fact, I am one of about 25 speakers at this TEDx extravaganza at the headquarters of the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C. The event runs from 8:00 am to 5:00 on Friday, March 15. If you can’t make it to the NGS headquarters, it is being webcast live. Go here for details. The recordings will also be posted on the TEDx site in about three weeks.
Should be fascinating!
