STIC Twenty Fourteen Event 6

The STIC 2014 series concludes with two more thought-provoking, curiosity-stirring TED Talks video screenings! ... Our sixth event opens with cabaret-rocker, performance artist, connection-age street economist Amanda Palmer. ... Astronomer, cyberhacker-catcher, Klein bottle-maker extraordinaire and education contrarian Clifford Stoll concludes our playlist! ... Doors open 5:30, program starts 6:30. Hope to see you there then!

Amanda Palmer, "The art of asking" (TED 2013)
Can 7 billion drowning men and women save each other? If so, it's going to take a whole lot of connection and empathy, suggests Mr. Palmer! She offers some hard-earned life lessons for for consideration about trust and reciprocity in this surprising talk. 

Clifford Stoll, "The call to learn" (TED 2006) once labeled this talk "A conversation with an agile mind." (Good description!) This extra-energetic, seemingly discursive talk might meaningfully tagged a lot of things--including "the art and power of mentoring." Guess what--fostering curiosity helps! And building real relationships!
