May. 6th, 2008
As noted on the other diary, I've signed up my iPod to the TED talks feed, and have been working my way through the backlog of about 200 video clips - mainly on my commute to work. Some of them seem, at a glance, to be less interesting to me than others, but I've got the sort of nerd checkbox mentality that won't let me skip one. Which is why I found myself watching Ben Saunders talking about walking solo to the North Pole, and instead of the somewhat dry I AM EXPLORER talk I was expecting, I found a very funny, emotionally moving description of one man's crazy trek across the top of the planet.
