Dance vs. powerpoint, a modest proposal: John Bohannon on

Use dancers instead of powerpoint. That’s science writer John Bohannon’s “modest proposal.” In this spellbinding choreographed talk from TEDxBrussels he makes his case by example, aided by dancers from Black Label Movement. (Recorded at TEDxBrussels 2011, November 2011, in Brussels, Belgium. Duration: 11:08.)
