Orlando had its first TEDx on November 13th, 2010 at the Orlando Science Center. Video from the TEDxOrlando talks have started to be released on YouTube recently.
Here is a video from Marc Sardy titled Educating for Peace through the Global Peace Film Festival:
Marc Sardy is passionate about educating for peace. Following formative experiences in the Australian outback, the UK, Malaysia, France, and China, he became convinced that cinema can be a powerful tool for inspiring people and motivating them to come together. Since 2005, he's worked with Orlando's Global Peace Festival in order to realize this vision. Festival programming focuses on diversity, and films are selected for the potential they have to increase understanding, awareness, appreciation and action -- prerequisites for a peaceful world.

Making your own rapid prototyping machines at home is now not uncommon, but this is one of the first meta-bots I've seen - a robot made of Lego parts that prints using Lego parts as the raw material. Apparently, you can design the creations in a Lego CAD program, and feed them to this machine. It even presses down the bricks!
I came across a video made by using long-exposure photographs of blinking lights on a turntable, driven by an Arduino controller. The results are visually stunning. I don't know how long it takes Kim Pimmel to make just a few seconds of video, but if it's anything like normal stop motion - and normal computer graphics - now compounded by trying to get the lights and motors do do what you want them to, I'll say that this is a hobby for the patient man.
People often credit their ideas to individual "Eureka!" moments. But Steven Johnson shows how history tells a different story. His fascinating tour takes us from the "liquid networks" of London's coffee houses to Charles Darwin's long, slow hunch to today's high-velocity web.
