Nine days before TED2008, filmmaker David Hoffman lost almost everything he owned in a fire that destroyed his home, office, and 30 years of passionate collecting. He looks back at a life that’s been wiped clean in an instant — and looks forward.
(Recorded February 2008 in Monterey, California. Duration: 4:06.)
