Design has always been something that has fascinated me and it wasn’t until I start to ask deeper questions that I began to appreciate the intestacies on mutiple levels.

One of the best things that happened to me in the last twelve months was being given the opportunity to start a monthly TED Circles session hosted by CN&CO. If you’re interested, you can create your very own here.

Designing this space for open, honest and explorative conversation has taught me an immense amount. It has reaffirmed the importance of people in this “hi-tech” world in which we live.

So, my hope is that this talk from Neri Oxman (a person and mind that I greatly admire) will help us all to design a better future. It will remind us of the intersection between biology and technology. Showing us that the fields both have much to learn from one another and that as humans we have an enormous amount of responsibly for our future.

TED continues to spread ideas and help us all be better critical thinkers. Watching, listening and talking about TED Talks is a popular pastime for many in the CN&CO community. We visit TED.com regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh, learn or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations and business opportunities. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. It’s also a way that the CN&CO team play their part in spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place.
