Eureka! (It's TEDx Eureka)

Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 2:48 PM

The Journal's Field Notes columnist Barry Evans was among the deep thinkers dropping knowledge at TEDx Eureka, which, as Evans pointed out somewhat ironically, took place in Arcata in December.

Humboldt's first such event featured talks on a wide range of topics, everything from recycling and roller derby to the American Revolution and the environmental impact of the local marijuana industry, all very loosely connected by the theme, "I found it!"

Watch Evans' talk on "The Streaker of Syracuse: Archimedes, Eureka & the Golden Crown" as he takes the Eureka moment theme literally, although in a roundabout way, helping to explain how Eureka got its name. 

You find the whole TEDx Eureka, I Found It! shebang HERE.
