I was randomly watching this and thinking about how much his talk applies to unicycling, then 10 minutes in I got excited
so true. my unicycle would probably be collecting dust had i not seen the many trials vids on youtube
Same here. It’s so amazing… The internet and videos are what keep me connected and inspire me to improve more when I see the skill of others. And then it’s even more amazing when we get to meet each other at conventions and stuff, after already being connected online.
I wouldnt even be riding or have gone to America if it wasnt for the universe 2 trailer being posted on youtube
I am going to host 10 random people in my flat for a small uni-convention happening in Leipzig. I have seen two of them in real life before the internet really connects people.
9m48s to be exact. Congrats to Sam Haber
Thanks for posting this, Spencer.
Chris told me he was working on this talk, and I agreed to answer some questions. Right off the bat I knew that unicycling was exactly the type of example he was looking for to help express his point. It was a surprise to me to see that actually used some clips.
I expected that quite a few people would see this as TED is becoming more widely know, I did not expect so many people to be watching that one would actually be a unicyclist, and one that I know personally. Shows how connected we all really are through the net.
Just wanted to add that this TED talk was on CNN’s website a couple of days ago, which should give unicycling even more exposure. I just hope some of the 45-64 year old demographic this article is hitting will share it with their kids, haha.
