Dean Kamen and will.i.am talk at NPR

Dean Kamen and will.i.am had recently talked to NPR about “I Am First: Science Is Rock ‘n’ Roll.”

Best excerpt from the program from will.i.am:

“There’s this one guy named Edgar, it changed his life. He was going to be a gangster on drugs. He had a child. And U.S. FIRST changed his life. Now he’s going to make prosthetic hearts. Like how do you go from that? How do you go from I was going to go down this route, and now I’m going down this route, which they’re not even connected.”

Good link, Rei.

will.i.am really, truly gets it. It took me about 4 years.

Wow, he put his own money to buy a block of network television. Wow.

I mean, that’s… indescribable. I know he has quite the net worth, but that’s no small potatoes.

Everyone should thank will.i.am for single-handily putting up money and his time to promote FIRST !

This is the most publicity for Science since NASA launched space shuttles !
