Two nerdy obsessions meet -- and it's magic | Humour | Scoop.it
David Kwong is a magician who makes crossword puzzles -- in other words, a pretty nerdy guy. And for his next trick ...
R. Sieg's insight:

Did you like the speech?  Why, or why not?

I really enjoyed this Ted Talk.  I thought it was funny at times and I thought it was really well planned out.  I loved the fact that he was so confident in his trick that he published it in the NY Times.

What did you learn from watching this speaker?

I learned that trying to solve the world around us is an instinctual thing to do. 

How will you utilize what you learned in your everyday life?

I am not very likely to utilize anything I learned as knowing that my brain is constantly trying to decode the world isn't easily used knowledge.

Will you adopt any strategies you observed the speaker using during their speech?

If I am doing a speech like this, I will use his strategy of planting a kernel of an idea early in my presentation, and then call back that idea later on in the speed.
