Lec 17 - TEDxCaltech - Michelle Feynman and Christopher Sykes - Fun to Imagine

Lec 17 - TEDxCaltech - Michelle Feynman and Christopher Sykes - Fun to Imagine. Michelle Feynman is the daughter of Richard Feynman. A graduate of Art Center College of Design, Michelle is a freelance photographer and spends most of her days taking pictures. She is perhaps best known as the editor of, "Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track: The Letters of Richard P. Feynman," a collection of letters to and from her father.The book includes an introduction by Michelle in which she describes what it was like to grow up as the daughter of one of the world's best-known physicists. Michelle has also gathered a compilation of her father's artwork in a book entitled, "The Art of Richard P. Feynman: Images by a Curious Character." Christopher Sykes is a TV documentary producer based in London.  He was born in 1945, and was educated at the Atlantic College and Merton College, Oxford where he read English.  In 1970 he joined the BBC as a television researcher.He has made about seventy documentaries for BBC TV and Channel 4, some of which have been shown on PBS/Nova -- notably the programs he made with and about Richard Feynman ("The Pleasure of Finding Things Out," "Last Journey of a Genius" and "The Best Mind Since Einstein"). He is also a consultant to Web Stories, an online video collection of in-depth interviews with many of the great minds of our time. About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.) On January 14, 2011, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech, an exciting one-day event to honor Richard Feynman, Nobel Laureate, Caltech physics professor, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around "curious character."
