    One note: our "body schema" is the image we have about our body in our minds. The phrase "mold your body schema" is hack #64 from the O'Reilly book "Mind Hacks". The linguistics of proposals like this are always a bit tricky. Different ways to say this are "hack your body schema" or maybe "adapt the way you visualize your body". Thanks for your votes!

    Presentations about science are relatively rare at Ignites. There are three questions about such presos: are they crackpot? are they boring? are they cool and engaging for the entire audience? I'll address each of those:

    I present real science and provide references to papers published in journals. For those interested in chasing the links, I gen slide notes and provide the slide note link during my presentation. That's partially for my own sanity -- I don't have to worry about forgetting something. For those who don't want to get the notes, the pres. will stand on its own.

    As the TED talks show, science is best when it's fun. I don't think anyone can definitively say when we're at the beginning of a scientific revolution, but it's a fun question. This one is neat because what this is challenging is far more accessible than particle physics or distant galaxies.

    I prep to make sure the topic is fun and engaging. You can see a video of the last Ignite preso I made: "Robots Growing Up: The Future of Robotic Movement". You can see a video of that presentation at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu63MW3Uf4M . The late Randy Paush's last lecture was a bit of head-fake; the last 4 slides of my presentation show my head-fake.

    IMHO, a scientific revolution that we can all participate in is way cool.
    E-mail me if you have any questions. Thanks for your consideration.
