David Gallo On Amazing Sea Creatures



I'm a huge fan of the TEDTalks Conference videos where a bunch of talented folks ranging from scientists, artists, writers, inventors and all around smart people come together from all over the World to deliver presentations about their work and findings. So, here is one that I think a lot of us Neatorama folks will enjoy and perhaps learn something along the way about some amazing sea creatures.

David Gallo shows jaw-dropping footage of amazing sea creatures, including a shape-shifting cuttlefish, a pair of fighting squid, and a mesmerizing gallery of bioluminescent fish that light up the blackest depths of the ocean. He focuses on the work of two scientists: Edith Widder at the Ocean Research & Conservation Association, and Roger Hanlon at the Marine Biological Lab.

I'm also going to chime in to praise the ted videos. I've seen quite a few and here are some of my favorites...

Doesn't this website have something to do with the myth known as "Intelligent Design?"

You can see a reference to it at the beginning of the piece.

Ah! I see what you mean! Yeah, just like what Alex said (with Google owning our souls in the near future) I think we could use their "unlimited" bandwidth, besides, I was feeling just a tad lazy coming back from Uni and work. ;p
