TEDtalks. Pretty awesome.
…and i’m such an idiot.

I had an opportunity to attend TEDtalks this Sunday but forgot to fill out an application.  DOH! Huge huge fail. At least I can watch it online.

You can too. Right here.
There are TEDx events held all around the world.
Find the nearest one to you here.

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.

At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.

Yes. You heard me right. This amazing artist Willard Wigan literally makes sculptures that fit into the eye of a needle.

It’s still a huge mystery to me how he controls his shaping tools on such a minuscule level and paints the characters. He describes losing a past work in progress by accidentally breathing it into his nostrils. TED did an interesting little feature on Willard, which you can check out below. You have to see this guy’s work to believe it.
