I did a TedX talk!

Hey everyone!

A little off topic for these forums, but check out my TedX talk on Urban Farming and Learning Environments!


Great talk I learned a lot. Congratulations

Interesting topic, you’re a good public speaker.

I do try to make work as fun as possible as that increases human intelligence. If you’re not laughing you’re working wrong.


That’s amazing! Great job and congratulations, @ryandhazen !

Great. Now do one about plastics and microfibers in our waters and the food chain :smiley:

FYI: scientists came up with an enzyme that breaks down plastics. The next thing to do is to scale it up without hitting the wallet hard.

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) specifically.

That and how do you control so it breaks plastic down only when you want it to. Imagine if it got released into the wild, air borne and then its arm race of more resistant plastics required which then must be carefully destroyed…

Nice. So, what is needed:

  • Educate people and encourage proper human behavior
  • Switch to PEF plastics
  • Use PEPtase in recycling plants
  • Pull in garbage dump in the Pacific Ocean and transport to recycling centers

Pushing audio and visual media about plastics in our water and foods ad nauseum.

I quite enjoyed that, well done sir… Thanks for sharing :sunglasses:

I don’t think that necessarily would be a bad thing. Nothing should last forever haven’t you seen Interview with a Vampire :yum:
