TEDxNewYork is held at GreyNY, 200 Fifth Avenue. We meet every week (mostly) on Fridays now and (mostly) from 1-2pm. We are open to the public. If you want to attend, send a note to admin@tedxnewyork.com (that's Don McKinney & Chel O'Reilly) with your vitals. Our biggest limitation is space so give us plenty of notice and we'll do our best to accommodate. Hope to see you at one of our events soon.

interstitial - Karey Mullis

Altermune linker - the possibility of taking a pre-existing molecule that can fight an attacking bacteria instantly.

I'm going to have to link back when I read more so I can explain more.

Though his metaphor was effective: how do we get attacking bacteria off the street really fast? When you stop a speeding car on the road, don't just pull it over, toss a dime bag in the back seat and arrest the mother.

It's how we can keep a rat infected with anthrax alive.

Chris Anderson was trying to wrap him up because of time and asked him if it was his last slide? Yes. "But it's a long and boring slide." "It wouldn't be boring if you were a rat with anthrax."
