Taylor Wilson

On a new design of modular molten salt nuclear fission reactor.


TED’s new custom of sending out a daily reminder of the day’s TED Talk is a pretty good idea for me. I get a reminder and a link, and sometimes just at the right time of the day so that I can download it before I leave work and watch after supper.

Three on one night.

Listened to all three my weekly talks tonight.

Paul Nicklen, on arctic life.
Fio Omenetto, on the technological uses of silk.
Suzanne Lee, on growing cellulosic fabrics.

Three a week sounds very little, but at 18 minutes for the longer ones, it comes to almost an hour. However, this hour cannot be considered wasted.
