Kirk Citron, the man behind Long News here on this blog, was invited to give a short talk on it at this years TED conference in Long Beach.  They just posted the video which you can see above.  Congratulations to Kirk, and big thanks for coming to us with the idea and doing such a great job curating!

  • Kirk has a fair point, though as I can see from the results many people rated the talk as Unconvincing. It would have been nice if he had backed up his theory with some news from the pre world wars era that still made it to us for example :)

    “It would have been nice if he had backed up his theory with some news from the pre world wars era that still made it to us for example :)”

    I think that’s more a problem of form/time. If you have three minutes to put your case, you either have time to point your examples backward or forward in time. It seems like it would have been much thinner to do both.

    I used to work for this man. He is brilliant. Listen to him often and carefully.

    Better wind that clock up.

    Thank you.

    Hey, were you that Andre guy who I was talking to about Elixor bass guitar strings at that HAVE MILK festival a couple of years ago?
