    Note to self: When speaking at a podium, don't make clicking noises near the microphone.

    TED = Technology, ENTERTAINMENT, DESIGN

    if you want JUST "science," go ahead and search for those videos.

    are you such a close-minded, self-absorbed ignoramus that you think TED was just made for YOU and what YOU want?

    "What's that mysterious ticking noise?" 😉

    The problem with that "Hide behind the internet coward" argument is it has no real basis in reality.

    I think that the "mysterious noise"
    might be the sound that her bracelet just makes(because it is annoying), being transmitted through the air and arm into the platform, where it is amplified, rather like a sound box, to the microphone just above.
    Great design huh?

    "Solemn" is phoney and pretentious.
    "Serious" is sincere and authentic.

    it's annoying as hell, i think you're right, yeah.

    I don't agree with her tying the distinction to the words "solemn" and "serious", but a terrific talk nonetheless.

    It's actually a very Zen concept, the distinction between solemn and serious.

    Her designs are boring, as is most chaotic disorderly modern graphic design. Order is interesting, chaos is boring. Just as good reception is more interesting than static.

    I like putting words on the floor, might as well use that space. I think stores should put the contents of an aisle on the floor graphically instead of making us look up to the signs.

    I can't watch this because of WHATEVER keeps happening with the mic.

    ? Real life doesn't have an annoying mic malfunction that hurts your ears for 20 minutes straight.

    It isn't a mic malfunction. It's the ring in her hand knocking the plexy surface. Gotta replace your ears. They wont be there for 20 minutes but for the rest of your life 😉

    If you think I watched it long enough to figure out what was causing the noise, you're wrong.

    great talk, but the clicker noise kills it. Where the hell is the AV tech, just tell her at the beginning… The AV tech should be ashamed of themselves.

    yeah no kidding – very – very distracting, but the topic was of great interest.

    I fully 100% agree with you. BUT

    why is it that when I make a comment like that some fuck face says to me something stupid like:

    "Don't watch it then."

    The presentation is just as important as the idea isn't it?

    This woman is amazing. Everything was so structured in the 70s and she must have been one of the first designers to come out with designs like this. They seriously revolutionized the way design was looked at by the general populace.

    If you mean the cameramen, there are at least 3 different cameras shooting her, I doubt all three cameramen are producing the same noise. As well, the clicking noises are in sync with her movements and gestures (especially noticeable near the half-point of the video).

    She was nervous guys give the lady a break. It was a bit annoying, but her talk MORE than made up for it. I think she did great.

    As do many at TED talks but most speakers know better than to click it next to the microphone.

    Reply
  • Cloxboy

    And even more, a lot of that clicking wasn't from clicking the device, it was made by jiggling it around the podium.
