TEDTalks: Photos That Changed The World

If you’ve never watched a TEDTalk before, TED.com has a vast variety of topics from robotics to aliens translated into dozens of languages. New ones are posted every week and they are definitely worth getting addicted to.

The University of Utah is hosting its 10th annual World Tai Chi Day tomorrow. I’ll post a gallery up by Sunday.

Oh, and Buzz Aldrin punched a guy in the face a couple years ago.
