Grew up in Norman Oklahoma and went to OU for 3 years before transferring to University of Texas at Austin in 93. Graduated from there with a chemical engineering degree in 95. I was good at chemE, but tired of it by the time I graduated and immediately started www.austincityguide.com. Battled with that for years to get it to a point that it nearly runs itself and makes enough money to throw at something bigger. Launched www.reservationgenie.com a year ago and am growing that concept as my main work these days.

You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
