Hillel Cooperman’s TED Talk: Legos Are Not Just For Kids

Lest we forget that TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, Hillel Cooperman made his six minute TED talk about, what else, Legos.  The ever versatile kids’ building toy has lead to robotics and programming competitions around the world, and, as Cooperman relates, the culture of adult Lego enthusiasts is growing day by day.

As of 2007, if you divided all the Lego bricks ever made among the world population of 6,000,000,000, everyone in the world would have sixty-two Lego pieces.  There’s a lot you can do with sixty-two Lego pieces!

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
