From the description :

Quote:
Published on 23 Sep 2013 Ivo Vegter is a columnist and author of Extreme Environment, in which he warns about environmental exaggeration and how it harms emerging economies. Taking excessive risks may be dangerous, but so is excessive risk avoidance. Using several startling or amusing examples, he'll make a strong case for why facts and reason must trump emotion and exaggeration. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
The Tedx stuff is worth exploring if you get a chance, loads of stuff.

As for Hermann - very few miles done recently, but I do need to update him.

Joshua Prince-Ramos: Designing the Seattle Central Library

I didn't like that building when I was in it [ramp-like walking detected] but having watched this I think I understand the features and benefits a lot better. Now I want to go back and hang out there.

He describes a Hyper-Rational design process [you might like] applied to three buildings.
