TEDTalks Uri Alon

Uri Alon

19 Jun, 2013

Alon, a systems biologist, gives a talk on his struggles as a scientist trying to find direct paths from a postulated question to a scientific answer. However, an evening out at improv theatre and the usage of the “yes, and” technique gives him a new way of looking at the scientific process which he now challenges all of his audience to consider.

And you can go through the cloud not alone but together with someone who is your source of support to say “Yes, and” to your ideas, to help you say “Yes, and” to your own ideas, to increase the chance that, through the wisps of the cloud, you’ll find that moment of calmness where you get your first glimpse of your unexpected discovery.
