#TED Tweet Flow
#* We could free all the slaves in the world for $11B — less than what we spend on chips and salsa each year.
#* George Church (molecular technologist)
#* We’ve come a long way from Gutenberg. We take for granted computer printing. Next wave is 3D printing.
#* George Church has been engineering genomes
#* Reading and writing of DNA – life is becoming very doable very quickly. We’ve come a long way from guttenberg. 3D printing.
#* Synthetic biology: Church shows us we can 3D print synthetic life. That’s the Star Trek replicator, kids
#* Harvard’s George Church says DNA cost/production growth now 10-fold per year; outstrips Moore’s law
#* Metropolis – incredible stop-motion animation physically manipulates historical aerial images of the city
#* Standard Time – 70 workers build wooden 4x12m ‘digital’ display in real time, 1611 changes in 24 hours
#* Synthetic biology can help increase safety and productivity – bioremediated water, vaccines, bioplastics
#* 7B people on planet puts us well beyond the planets ability to supply what’s needed… usher in synthetic biology.
#* Levi’s “Go Forth” short film – 30 stories in 30 cities in 30 days, quite wonderful
#* The tree is the phylogenetic tree of life — and renders them in a zooming interface. It’s written using the nifty visualization language Processing.
#* human genome work is 20years ahead of moore’s law predictions says george church synthetic life designer from harvard
#* John Underkoffler, designing 3D human-computer interfaces. reminds me to think big
#* DNA has more than 2 symbols to define a product. Can we have a similar approach in computing instead of just a binary system?
#* Why synthetic life? Safe food & water, resistance to viruses, new fuels, smart materials.
#* Nuclear Proliferation Is This Year’s Inconvenient Truth Countdown to Zero at #TED
#* talks about Moore’s law! WOW!
#* Mind shift is useless without law shift. True that.
#* Carter Emmart’s Virtual Universe is simply jaw-dropping
#* New blog: 4chan founder says anonymous speech is ‘endangered’ online; over-sharing on Web is ‘scary.’
#* KIPP founders: only 4 of 10 kids in the US go to college, only 1 of 10 graduate. What if it were different?
#* Author: The Web is among world’s most ‘destructive’ technologies
#* Using Lasers to Zap Mosquitoes
#* cool amazing real-time translation! @TarjemTED  is livetweeting the conference in Arabic.
Bill Gates
#* is talking about energy and climate at #ted
#* My fulltime work with the foundation is mainly about vaccines and seeds: the things that will help the poorest 2 million
#* Climate getting worse means that crops won’t grow, too much or too less grain. Leads to unrest, starvation etc
#* As we make electricity cheaper in the rich world, we run into a new constraint: CO2
#* is talking about how climate change and lack of energy affects the poor of the planet.
#* We put out over 26 billion tons of CO2 per year, 20 tons for the average American
#* If there were one thing you could reduce the price of to improve poverty, it would be energy.
#* Did @BillGates just say he wanted to reduce the world population by 10-15%?!?
#* Through inventions, there are a lot of services where energy can be brought down substantitally
#* Gates solution to global climate change: “an energy miracle in a pretty tight timeline.”
#* We need “energy miracles” and this time, unlike with other miracles like the computer, we have a deadline
#* Fireflies: Mosquitos 2.0 #TED
#* His equation is CO2=PxSxExC. P=People, S=Services, E=Energy, C=CO2. One of these values needs to go to 0. (Not P.)
#* 5 energy miracles needed: carbon capture & storage, nuclear, wind, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal.
#* All the batteries on Earth can store less than 10 minutes of the world’s electricity needs.
#* Do we need a Manhattan Project of energy? There should be hundreds of companies in each of these 5 areas.
#* Coal and natural gas should not be included in our energy future; says carbon capture, nuclear, wind, solar are musts.
#* There’s enough spent uranium to power the US for two centuries in Paducah, KY.
#* Depleted uranium supplies could power the U.S. for hundreds of years. Calls for tech development to make it possible.
#* If I only had only 1 wish for the next 50 years, it’d be to invent the thing that halves the cost of CO2
#* Nathan Myhrvold and I are starting a company that’s looking at nuclear. Innovation stopped there many years ago.
#* I’d rather see cheaper, clean energy developed than pick the next presidents or come up with a miracle vaccine.
#* Can the ukulele stop war?:
#* For one of these high-scale electrical generation things that’s very cheap, we need 20 yrs to invent, 20 yrs to deploy.
#* shows what the world needs now is TERRAPOWER: promising nuclear fission solution which could power world from nuclear waste
#* geoengineering important insurance policy, be in our back pocket as impacts hit hard and fast. I agree.
#* The problem with geoengineering similar to Elizabeth Pisani’s AIDS conundrum. Once there’s a pill, prevention is boring.
#* Traveling wave reactor burns spent uranium (waste from nuclear reactors) using existing supply would power US for 200 years.
#* The problem w geoengineering similar to Pisani’s AIDS conundrum. Once there’s a pill, prevention is boring.
#* says the world needs nuclear fission. @missrogue  says, Hmmmm –>
#* Nuclear proliferation is this year’s inconvenient truth
#* we have 20 years to invent & 20 years to deploy. We need one game-changer energy breakthrough to succeed.
#* Gates on energy research and dev: “It’s crazy how little it’s funded.” He just concluded his talk
#* High speed, 6,000 frame-per-second images of mosqitoes from Intellectual Ventures Lab online here at
#* Specificity. If you get rid of Autism, there’d be no Silicon Valley & the energy crisis would not be solved.
#* Pivot: Turning Information into Insights
#* Sam Harris says Internet is world’s “most destructive” technology, but is destruction always bad?
#* Seth Berkeley – “we once knew a world without AIDS, we owe our children a world without AIDS…” #quote
#* Halting Blood Vessels Key to New #Cancer Treatment; Possibly Obesity -Wired
#* Marian @Bantjes (designer & illustrator), for more info on her, check out this bag:
#* Mitchell Joachim is growing homes. Use scaffolding to shape trees that become homes. Awesome.
#* Man had art well before language as in 50,000 years before Denis Dutton
#* that’s an awesome suggestion! I love the idea of investing in people doing stuff that matters. 🙂
