Keep It Simple

I’ve been reading Superfreakonomics and just finished up the chapter on how the best fixes are often the simplest and cheapest. This talk from Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame reminds us of how simple ideas have lead to some of the most revolutionary scientific discoveries. Both are great reminders for your professional and personal lives.

    Not trying to sound like a jackass or anything, but i dont understand why he’s telling this story at a TED conference. The first time I heard about the story with the sun was in 6th grade elementary school and 12th grade physics for´╗┐ the calculation in the speed of light. And I went to simple public school, nothing prestigious or classy about it at all
