http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=as_UuzbcGGQ I’m so happy to see a TEDxTokyo talk by my old friend, and yo-yo hero, Black. It’s a 5 minute talk about the usual “chase your dreams” stuff, followed by a 4 minute yo-yo presentation. Black is totally the man. He picked his stage character early on, and really sticks to it.

In the above video you can see Johannes Grenzfurthner, one of monocrhom’s founding members, TED talk about experiments with subversion. In this video he tells the story about an Austrian artist named Georg Paul Thomann… who didn’t actually exist.
