Redefining Dictionaries from TED: A must watch


Was late to work today because I could not tear myself away from this video: TED: Redefining Dictionaries (tip from Stephen Abrams).
Erin McKean is hilarious in a very geeky way. This is an intelligent, funny, engaging talk about the challenges and opportunities of redefining dictionaries in a digital age.
My favorite part is her definition of serendipity: “finding something you weren’t looking for, because finding what you were looking for is so damn hard.”
Just watch it, trust me.
