Textually-Challenged Love

This rather amazing three-minute presentation depicts a typographical fairy tale.  The video features slam poet Rives.  It was recorded in February and showed up on the TED blog today.  I just had to share this one.  It is far more creative that I originally guessed it might be.  This was more exciting to me the day I watched it, but is also much to good to let slide.  I have been trying to find a way to embed it here.  I failed.  So here is the link:

A STORY OF MIXED EMOTICONS

If you aren’t currently channeling TED into your readers…  then you are missing some of the most truly inspiring content that is freely-downloadable.  If you haven’t been there in a while, check out TED.  As the website says: “Every so often it makes sense to emerge from the trenches we dig for a living, and ascend to a 30,000-foot view, where we see, to our astonishment, an intricately interconnected whole.”

This is the first time I have linked out to a video like this instead of bringing it to you on this page.  Sorry, but I am still trying to figure out how to embed a TED talks video into an Edublogs blog.

  1. I agree that this video is one that grows on you. The first time through, I was caught up with trying to decipher the emoticons. (Totally not the point of the video).

    Thanks for the suggestion to put TED into my reader. I’ll do that.
