My Hackasaurus talk in Brussels

June 29, 2011 § 2 Comments

Earlier this month, I had a chance to talk about Mozilla’s new Hackasaurus program at TEDx Kids in Brussels.

It was especially fun as they encouraged me to talk about both Hackasaurus (kids learning to remix the web) and my personal motivations (a hackable, webbish world). Here is the video:

In addition to the talk, awesome Hackasaurus leads Jess Klein and Atul Varma lead hack jams for 50+ TEDx-10-year-olds. My 11 year old son Tristan also pitched in with the jams.

A PDF version of the slides is here, although they aren’t much use without the video and voice over narration. I’ve also put slides and a webcast of recent board meeting presentation on Hackasaurus plans in this post.

  • Dear Mr. Surman –

    We will publish Philanthropy in America: A History by Olivier Zunz in December 2011. I thought you might be interested in receiving a review copy. Please let me know the best address to use.

    We also have a second book that may be of interest — Michael Nielsen writes about open science and open data/access issues in Reinventing Discovery (publishes November 2011).

    Thank you,
