It was such a thrill to speak at the TED conference last winter, and I am excited that they have put my talk on their website! Here it is:
My great thanks to the many people who made this possible at TED, at Studio 360, at WNYC and PRI, to Miriam Katin for her wonderful drawings, and to the artists whose stories I share in this talk. Thanks also to Seth Godin for telling me I needed to break something (easier said than done!); my friends and family for listening to me rehearse until they knew the talk by heart; Bob Miller, who gave me the chance to write Spark; to Laureen Rowland for her wise and insigtful guidance; Julia Cheiffetz for her thoughtful editing and inspired title choice; to Tom Neugebauer for the dynamic raku process photographs; and all of you who are brave enough to pursue your creative spark!
