Randall Munroe: Comics That Ask “What If?”

Posted by & filed under Think Tank.

Randall Munroe sketches elegant and illuminating explanations of the weird science and math questions that keep geeks awake at night … [He] answers simple what-if questions (“what if you hit a baseball moving at the speed of light?”) using math, physics, logic and deadpan humor. In this charming talk, a reader’s question about Google’s data warehouse leads Munroe down a circuitous path to a hilariously over-detailed answer — in which, shhh, you might actually learn something.

–This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured on TED.com
