Humans adapt to physical and creative challenges in remarkable ways. How do we do it, and what happens when we can't? These TED speakers share inspiring stories about our capacity to adapt. Listen to the full episode here:
  1. Daniel Kish has been blind since he was 13 months old, but has learned to “see” using a form of echolocation.
  2. Janet Echelman found her true voice as an artist when her paints went missing — which forced her to look to an unorthodox new art material.
    Now she makes billowing, building-sized sculptures, made of natural and synthetic fibers.
  3. What happens when an African-American guy movies into a "Whitopia?" Lots of golf, poker, and revealing conversations.
    As America becomes more multicultural, Rich Benjamin has noticed a phenomenon: some communities are actually becoming less diverse. So he got out a map, found the whitest towns in the USA and moved in.
