@ GrayGaffer: I just watched it about a half hour ago. But if it doesn't work for you here, you can see it at the TEDTalks website, or you can be lazy like me and subscribe via iTunes, which has something like 250 segments - everything from the last 2 years, it looks like.

The entire series is absolutely incredible. I keep every episode. I've got CD-ROMS full of them.
