Cesar HARADA, “People, places, things, ideas” http://youtu.be/GwP4zS3RMoE
It was a great honor to present Protei recent development at TEDxHongKong Ed. I was originally planning to speak about how much we are engaged into education with Scoutbots and Protei, but in the light of the discussion I had with the curators of the event, it turns out they were more interested in my personal learning experiences. So I am sharing here some very personal stories. I don’t know when the talk will be up online, but in the mean time you can enjoy my slides.
In this presentation I argued that I learn most from people I meet and work with, places I go and study, things that we make and play with, producing new ideas we love sharing.
The People I talk about :
- “Captain Courage” in New Orleans, that worked on the BP Oil Spill despite his handicap
- Nathan Prochownik, my figure of grand father, Shoah survival. His book about the death camps.
- Tetsuo Harada, my father the Japanese sculptor based in Paris France
The Places :
- BP Oil Spill, Gulf of Mexico
- Unreasonable at Sea
- Fukushima, journey with Safecast
- London, My yurt
- Hawaii, plastic pollution, video
- Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh city, water pollution
- India, Kochi, water pollution
- Ghana, Axium (near Takoradi), Oil pollution
- Hong Kong, Lamma Island Oil Spill, Oil pollution
