Now that the year is (almost) over, what do you think are the must-watch tech talks from the past year?



Matt Mights "Winning the War on Error: Solving the Halting Problem and Curing Cancer" is one that is well worth watching.

Thank you, absolutely fascinating talk. It was hard to develop video games back in the day and just as it was hard to beat those games. What a wonderful era of ingenuity, creativity and passion.


Perhaps you should start by sharing yours!
