Our latest “Tea with TED” Talk was by science journalist Joshua Foer, who focused on memory.
I chose Foer because he will be speaking about his book, “Moonwalking with Einstein,” at Roanoke’s Jefferson Center on Monday, Sept. 10. Find ticket info here.
The main point I took away from his talk was reinforcement that we are visual creatures — and why visual storytelling is so powerful (and important if we want folks to engage with — and remember — what we create).
From TED: There are people who can quickly memorize lists of thousands of numbers, the order of all the cards in a deck (or ten!), and much more. Science writer Joshua Foer describes the technique — called the memory palace — and shows off its most remarkable feature: anyone can learn how to use it, including him.
The talk is 20 minutes long. WATCH HERE »
