Venter Does TED
Craig Venter is one of my role models. Since mapping the entire human genome wasn't enough, he's moved on to creating synthetic life. It's absolutely amazing work that will no doubt impact the life of every person on the planet sooner or later.
Something I found interesting was how he almost brushed off the breadth of this coming impact. He knows it'll be big, but it's just another day in the lab.
