In our own back yard

Didn’t see this in the paper before yesterday’s meeting.

Somewhere it is written that the nerds shall inherit the Earth. They got off to a good start last week by taking over the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for three days of provocation and performance art aimed at spreading new ideas among the well-connected and influential in the worlds of health and medicine.

This was TEDMED, an uber-hip, self-declared “great gathering” that wrapped up Friday, a festival of high-brow nerdiness where ideas are currency, scientists are superstars and a seat in the house costs $5,000.
