Celebrate Coral and Crochet

Speaking at the 2009 TED, here is Margaret Wertheim: The beautiful math that links coral, crochet and hyperbolic geometry

Margaret Wertheim leads a project to re-create the creatures of the coral reefs using a crochet technique invented by a mathematician -- celebrating the amazements of the reef, and deep-diving into the hyperbolic geometry underlying coral creation.

This cool conference that happens in Long Beach, California has captured my attention for the past couple of years. TED not only gives out prizes to make wishes come true but they also have this great new website that does an amazing job at spreading ideas.

Please go and check them out, and enjoy this talk about coral reefs and crochet - it is in honor of Earth Day and my mother, who loves her crochet. Read more about Margaret....
