Eric Cheng’s TEDxBerkeley 2010 talk: The Ocean is Earth’s Last Frontier

:: Sunday, April 4th, 2010 @ 2:43:50 am

:: Tags: , , ,

Here’s the justin.tv archive official video from my talk at TEDxBerkeley 2010, which was about bioluminescent flashlight fish in Papua New Guinea and sperm whales and Architeuthis dux giant squid in Ogasawara, Japan and Dominica.

To head off any confusion, the first Asian guy to appear is not me… and the crack about emotion and suffering only makes sense if you watch the entire TEDxBerkeley talk from the beginning. :)

I’d like to thank Jessica Mah, Kai Chang, and all of the other organizers of TEDxBerkeley for doing a fantastic job of putting together such an incredible event. I was truly inspired by all of the other speakers and my heart was warmed by those of you in the audience who came up to meet me afterward to tell me your stories about the ocean.

There is a full archive of the event online, but you might find the clips easier to browse. I assume the TEDxBerkeley team will create clips for all of the talks, but you might have to wait until they catch up on sleep.

Special thanks to Vino Wong and Courtney Platt for allowing the use of their photography.

UPDATE: Mona’s photos from TedXBerkeley are now up on Flickr!

    Well well, look which crazy person is fully-rested up at this unholy hour making comments on Echeng's journal again Yes, the time/date stamp on this comment correct – my circadian rhythms snap me out of bed between 5~6:30am every day no matter my actual sleep hours logged. Much to the annoyance of several women I've dated in recent years.

    Anyway.

    Awesome talk, E. Been getting a lot of emails from attendees asking me about your talk, telling me how much they've enjoyed it; a number of them who mentioned they are now inspired to start (or complete) their SCUBA training directly a result of your presentation. Have a gift box for all speakers I need to get you (though I suspect P might be more interested in its content)!

    A favor: My domain name is right now an “under construction” rework – would you be be so kind as to change the link to my super-duper never-upgraded-since-2001 http://pjammer.livejournal.com ? :)

    I would like to re-title this talk “Moby Dick Vs. Mega-Squid”.

    awesome eric, thanks for a beautiful talk :) love your photographs.

    I only came to visit your website after playing Jagged Alliance 2 – releasing the source code was such a gift to the community! It's still being played, over 10 years after release. Massive achievement for a computer game…

    Johan – I'm glad you enjoyed the talk! However, you may think that I am another Eric Cheng. (I have a software background, but am not a game developer)
