Dear GrrlScientist,
I would have missed TEDTalks entirely without your post here. It's not just about info in the beauty of life and nature, but this piece brings specifically about the people who are really trying to give back something worthy to the society. I realize what you are doing by relating these materials to us is another way of giving back just as importantly as Nalini Nadkarni and others NN cited. Please don't ever stop your work, and thank you! I value you so very highly among others, and I hope you know how important you are.
