darpa - scientists and engineers change the world..
be nice to nerds..

remove fear of failure.. impossible things become possible
the fear of failure confines you and life gets dull.
sure good things happen, but amazing things stop happening.

"What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" asks Regina Dugan, then director of DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. In this breathtaking talk she describes some of the extraordinary projects -- a robotic hummingbird, a prosthetic arm controlled by thought, and, well, the internet -- that her agency has created by not worrying that they might fail. (Followed by a Q&A with TED's Chris Anderson)
