Blog Post #13
These days when I feel sad or worried about the state of the world, I like to watch a TED Talk.
TED Talks — “ideas worth spreading” — are short, compelling talks on widespread topics from activism to youth and everything in between. You can find everything you need to know about TED (including what the acronym stands for) on the organization’s website: TED Ideas Worth Spreading.
TED gives me hope about the future of our world . The short talks (usually under 18 minutes) amaze me with the exciting and innovation things that are happening around the world today, right this very minute. I am blown away by the inspiring individuals that present TED Talks.
In this talk that I am sharing here, Caleb Harper, director of CitiFARM at the MIT Media Lab, is shaping the future of farming with his development of “food computers” which are connecting growers with technology with impressive results. My friend, Dani, from Yesterdays Garden would be thrilled to know that Harper has grown sauce tomatoes that haven’t been in commercial production for 150 years, in his computer farm!
Are food computers the answer to the growing global food shortage? Can technology feed the world? Watch this TED Talk — you just may be surprised at what you find out!
