Dear wonderful Formiculture members,

 

Not long ago, my brother (Bracchymyrmex) and I were invited to deliver a TED talk on the subject of ants in Springfield, Massachusetts. Here it is, if you are interested:

We would like to thank MrILoveTheAnts, BatSpiderFish and so many more of you for your support through the process. Yes, there are a few very slight factual inaccuracies here and there, but I don't think there's anything too out of whack.

 

Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. We hope you enjoy! :)

Wow, you guys are good speakers, I would have stuttered, knowing this would go online, or even just in front of an audience.

I'm here to learn, mostly.

Great job guys! That was amazing :)

Seriously, if I ever had to a TED talk on ants it would shatter seven billion eardrums with the incredible amounts of stuttering and voice cracks. I would also probably end up getting stage fright, with my unconscious body being devoured by millions of ants that got severely offended by my interpretation of them.

I was really impressed too, great talk and excellent presentation.  A bit far from me, but if I had know, maybe would have made the drive down.
