Not long ago, our Robbie held a TEDx talk in London, and we are pleased to announce that the talk is now available online at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM1CUnfdQ2M&feature=youtu.be

It's a very personal talk, about the mind, about persistence of mind, loss, and being connected beyond life's end.

We hope you enjoy it!

Milla,
Thank you for sharing that video. I'd never yet seen Robbie Stamp, though I'd seen Douglas Adams numerous times. In the video, Robbie conveys his heartfelt emotions surrounding the friendship he had with Douglas, and he recognizes the "ancestral" impact his presence makes on his progeny. It has given me pause to consider my own connections with family, in the past and right now, and gives me the impetus to share more regularly of myself. What more does any man or woman have to give, but their love and their memories?
smiley - tardis
We are -- each of us -- living time machines (as I recall Ray Bradbury once stating). We take our audience to places they may only partially remember, and to places only we have been and seen. We transport them into situations from which they can learn, we share the emotions we ourselves have felt and had to deal with, we watch their response to determine if there is indeed kinship in our thinking. We are the ones to demonstrate that our individual histories can be woven into a beautiful growing tapestry, a vibrant picture of all that mankind does and is capable of achieving.
