TED talk

The TED talk that I delivered last year on the main stage in Vancouver has now been released.

Over 18 minutes I explain the principals of how you could go about rebooting civilisation after an apocalypse. This thought experiment was a way of holding up a mirror to our  world, to explore all the behind-the-scenes fundamentals of how modern civilisation works; the stuff we just take for granted in our everyday lives. What enabled society to progress through the centuries and millennia of history?

In this talk I focus on three areas of capability: Food, Fire, and Knowledge.

You can also see stills from this event, and a live-scribed Infographic of the talk.
