This talk covers so much of what humans can and have offered each other. It goes quite deep for such a catchy title, and I’m left quite humbled with the realization that I could not make almost anything that I use. I don’t know how to mine graphite for pencils, or weave cotton for clothing, much less assemble a computer keyboard. This talk is rich in its offering of complexity made simple.
