Yes, I attended this year’s TED conference in Long Beach with several people from Japan, including my friends, Dr. Kiyoshi Kurokawa, Dr. Mario Tokoro, Dr. Ken Mogi, Patrick Newell, Ken Okuyama and Kumi Fujisawa. I will write up my experiences at the incredible event, but as they say, “when it rains, it pours.” These last few weeks have been incredibly crazy in preparation for a debate and several other announcements. Anyway, I will definitely return to this topic once things settle down (is that possible?). In the mean time, Bill Gross has done a great job of summarizing the busy week in just 300 Tweets. At least my pictures are uploaded here and even a few videos – enjoy!
