Erin McKean’s TED Talk


While not directly craft related, but I found this talk very inspirational. Erin McKean is chief editor of the Oxford English Dictionary; she uses beautiful metaphors to express her philosophy on life’s research, technology, and her passion for words. – Link.

    Great talk. Plus, admit it, you were totally reverse-engineering that dress the whole time.
    P.S. I could watch TED talks all day.

  4. MyFirstPony says:

    The crafty link is that I would bet a fair amount of money that Erin made that dress. In fact, unless I’m mistaken, it’s one in many of a series of her Duro-inspired dresses.
