The telephone adds at least ten pounds to my voice.....

Great job Nathan and an awesome final product. I learned some things as well from it. Combine Doug and Adam's comments for a great tool for new AND existing members of the site!

DG: Good to see you again! I would have opted for Mike Rowe "Dirty Jobs" voiceover. He does the Dangerous Catch voiceover.

Not sure about the part of the process part. That might slow registrations down, though there could be a skip link.

I would put this on the Blog, Discussion, Photo, Video, Group creation sections as well. That would help too. I learned about the timed release of blog/discussions while watching it. Very fun and cool.

Also, Having a conspicuous " Take The Video Tour" link on the main page (maybe somewhere under the logo with the main tabs) would encourage first time visitors to check it out.... could help to increase registration rate.

Awesome video. Great work Nathan! I tried to get James Earl Jones to do my voiceover for me....never returned my calls. Go figure.

Adam.... great suggestion on emailing this to each who registers. OR... maybe make watching the video part of the registration process???? Just a suggestion.

This is a great video. The link to this video should be sent in a hello email to each person who registers. It really walks people through. Plus it was great to see Matt, Doug, Andy and Amanda talk about their experinces! Very interesting to hear their voices since it's all typed conversation!

Great Job Michael, Ted, Diane, Sarah, Nathan and Co!!

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
