TEDxVienna Adventures: Prototyping at the AIT 1

  “It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.” Scott Belsky. In this spirit, TEDxVienna went on adventures in Vienna and this time did not only want to spread ideas, but figure out how to test ideas. Once a theory, concept or idea is born, the adventure does not […]

TEDxVienna Vsauce

Why (we do not need to learn more hard facts).

Why? The parade question nowadays. Asking why has become the synonym for an enlightened, well-balanced and youthful life. Being bored by the explanation of why butterflies are colorful is almost a neo-bohemian sin, which when vocalized on social platforms will be rectified by verbal stoning. Always keep on asking why!
