TED Circle in Tel Aviv

This week I participated in Israel's first TED circle in Tel Aviv.

We discussed a TED talk after watching it together. The main topic was efficiency vs. robustness.

It was delightful to meet thirty new people from all different countries, backgrounds, and ages.

Thanks to Professor Mel Rosenberg for inviting me AND we discovered that Professor Rosenberg's mother was my kindergarten teacher back in Ottawa--how's that for small world? 

Looking forward to the next TED circle.
