My Geek Manifesto talk at TEDxBrixton

I live in Herne Hill, south London, so it was great to be invited to take part in my local TEDx this summer — TEDxBrixton. Thanks very much to Linnie Rawlinson and Stephanie Busari for asking.

My talk on the Geek Manifesto — with a local twist about how randomised controlled trials might be used to inform rubbish collection policy — has just gone onto YouTube. Here it is.

(It should have been called TEDxHerneHill btw — Shakespeare Road, where it took place, is totally Herne Hill not Brixton…)

    Hi Mark, I’m reading The Geek Manifesto at the moment (and am thoroughly enjoying it). I’m pretty miffed I couldn’t make it to TEDxBrixton to see you speak. But I’m glad it’s finally been posted online! Keep up the good work.
    Oh and I used to live on Shakespeare Road when I first moved to London, it’s totally TEDxHerneHill!
