Randall Munroe recently gave a TED talk about things. Specifically his side blog project, What If? It’s more or less putting a voice and face to the wildly popular xkcd webcomic. It’s interesting. I mean, the video is 2 months old, and he goes over some of the older What If questions. But it’s still pretty interesting seeing him work through the through process of how he figured out the answers. I like it.
It turns out that he’s just as smart and interesting as his website makes him seem.
