I'm a runaway from the corporate world. It only took me 20 years to discover what I wanted to be: a Pastry Chef. I have traveled all over the world and I couldn't tell you what the meetings were about, but I can tell you in exquisite detail what the food was like. I have just finished Culinary school and I'm looking at launching my own Pastry supply business. I have a small private business on the side- mostly cakes and cookies- special orders. I'm also working in a really cool small wine/cheese shop that also sells French Pastries. LOVE IT!

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.
