I will be speaking at TED 2016

Dream. Kelly Stoetzel, TED Content Director, emailed me in May 2015, after watching the Codename Colossus introduction video, and invited me to be a speaker at TED. The first "rule" in the subsequent email was Confidentiality. They would prefer to reveal all the speakers of the annual conference at the same time. So pretty [...]
