Wm R Robertson (Bill Robertson) TedTalk on youtube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dKohUA_xQQ&feature=youtu.be

and a trailer for a soon to be released film entitled "Downsizing":

I enjoyed them, hope you might too

PS:  It's taken all morning to get through, it's like working a v old wind-up telephone today!

Thank you for sharing Do!

I love the bit in the "Downsized" trailer where the downsized fellow wakes up and his first move is.... well, go and watch it!

And the sentence "The small world is fiiilled with things to see" 


And I love Wm R Robertson's admission "I've had a love affair with objects all my life" and where it led him.... "I learned that what I wanted that I couldn't buy - I could build it"
Great talk!

That is all so wonderful!  Thank you so much, Do, for finding them for us.  I cannot believe what that big 'ham-fisted' man has made!  It's a wonderful world!
