[Ray Bradbury, who died this week at the age of 91, had
an intergenerational, international and -- who knows? --
perhaps an intergalactic readership. His classic
Fahrenheit 451, about a book-burning future, appeared in
1951. Bradbury was a self-taught man whose work (see,
for example, The Martian Chronicles) helped to redefine
"literature" in a more real and inclusive way. Don't yet
know Ray? You should. -- video moderator]

Ayah Bdeir: Building Blocks That Blink, Beep and Teach

Imagine a set of electronics as easy to play with as
Legos. TED Fellow Ayah Bdeir introduces littleBits, a
set of simple, interchangeable blocks that make
programming as simple and important a part of creativity
as snapping blocks together.

Ayah Bdeir is an engineer and artist, and is the founder
of littleBits and karaj, an experimental art,
architecture and technology lab in Beirut.
