My first paying restaurant gig was back in 1981, as a waiter and cook for a hotel restaurant. That job later turned into a job a KBob's. Got my first taste of management there, while still in high school. Worked in restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and radio stations through college. Managed a mom and pop Italian American restaurant from 1990-1993, bounced around for a year. Started working for my current employer back in 1994. Been there ever since! I was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland and grew up in Marshall, Texas.

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.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo.

It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
