Wow, those 'Symphony of Science' songs are beyond belief!

Noticed a bunch of TED talks already been posted but I was a bit disappointed to see my favourite one missing. Clifford Stoll's talks are always a joy to watch, his absolute passion for science is inspiring.

Extremely geeky but an interesting concept. More interested in how the possiblities of a device like this than the actual app they demo; essentially, a table whose top is a screen you can play Dungeons & Dragons on.

A video of the known universe to scale.

Worth watching in widescreen to get the full effect.

The link contains a video of Michel Specter talking about the public's growing fear of science and how it could lead to disaster for human progress. Very interesting stuff.
