Today is TedxSoMa, an independently organized TED event in San Francisco. The 10 minute talks run from 1pm to around 5pm PT, with presentations by Nicole Lazzaro, Pankaj Kedia, Pamela Hawley, Jeff Lawson, Christopher Willits, Jeffrey Betcher, Dev Patnaik, Nathan Shedroff, my Institute for the Future colleague Jason Tester, and... me. I'll be talking about "The World as a Wunderkammer: Curiosity, Citizen Science, and the Maker Culture," based on an essay I wrote for the Edge.org book "What Are You Optimistic About?: Today's Leading Thinkers on Why Things Are Good and Getting Better." Watch the talks live after the jump!
