Slow, maybe, compact, yes, instantaneous… Let’s hear it for more swiping… lol

Check out this TED Talk: Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are

Check out this pretty amazing TED Talk by a kid nick-named Pork Chop as he explores what it’s like to be a kid, and what that’s like given what kids are told. A journey into identity…
