Although I can’t remember where I saw “play with duct tape” on the list of learning objectives, I figured it would be cool to make a paper pinball machine with the kids – it’s kind of “educational.” (right?). Anyway, this ended up being a lot of fun, and (if I do say so myself) our…

@dnghub Twitter Feed This video of a talk I gave at Northern Voice got completed whilst I was away. Anyway, if I remember (I’m one of those people who can’t stand seeing themselves on video or hearing themselves on audio!), it’s a pretty decent overview of what the Phylo project is all about, as well…

… You should go outside. Seriously. And if, for today, you’ve forgotten how graceful our planet can be, I’d invite you to take a mental break, put some headphones on, and watch these three lovely videos. Iceland, Eyjafjallajökull – May 1st and 2nd, 2010 from Sean Stiegemeier on Vimeo.

In this video, I’m actually speaking (as oppose to dancing silly), since it looks like TEDx has released the mini talks we gave on our experiences hosting a TEDx conference. Anyway, it only confirms my theory that most people on TV have huge heads (this is data gathered from interacting with the odd TV host…

Sex with a parrot anyone?

Recently, I was on Australian radio doing a bit about the phylomon project and one of the creatures that the host brought up was the Kakapo. As well, an article at the Escapist was just published (again on the phylomon project), and within the comments there, the Kakapo was highlighted once again. What is it…

Wherein the toughest part was trying to edit down 56 minutes of great stuff into a 20 minute clip (as required by his office). Some great anecdotes here, so do pass on if you enjoy this (p.s. He gave another great talk at TED2010, so am also looking forward to that one). (From terry.ubc.ca)

Seems like TED.com is releasing videos on my list of favourites. Sit back and enjoy! As an aside, I’m curious what she thinks of this vaccine nonsense – as someone who relishes in the details, she would have been a great spokesperson in setting the Jenny McCarthys of the world straight.

I just noticed talks are up from the TEDxVancouver event I attended a little while back. At the time, I mainly focused on one particular speaker who was a Climate Change denialist, but now that the talks are up, I thought it fitting to highlight what I thought was one of the strongest talk (sort…

This was one of my favourite talks at TED2010. Worth a viewing – Mr. Howard makes a lot of good sense.

O.K. Now that we’re back in the swing of things – Here is talk number five from the TEDx Terry talks event I helped organize. This might seem like a talk about science, but if you think about it, there’s a lot of the humanities when it comes to fully appreciating something as magical as…
