Robin Williams on the TED stage At the 2008 TED Conference held in California, the BBC's "The World Debate" set up a panel discussion to be broadcast worldwide from the TED stage. When they went live with the show there appeared to be a major technical problem followed by several moments of dead air. As my friend Patrick Newell recalled the incident to me today (Patrick was in the audience that day), someone in the back of the room started heckling and dropping f-bombs, wondering why they can't get the technology to work at a technology conference. At first the audience was stunned but then broke into uproarious laughter once they realized that the "heckler" was Robin Williams. A message to TEDxTokyoPatrick Newell, co-founder of TEDxTokyo, ran into Robin Williams at that same TED Conference in 2008 and asked him if he would mind saying a few words regarding the first TEDxTokyo to take place the following year. Williams was brilliantly funny and a great actor.

Its has nothing to do with the Catholic idea of the rosary, but this term 'Rosarium' referred to a gathering of sayings of philosophers. This is a very conventional image and has little emblematic content that needs explanation. The Rosarium series of 20 woodcuts A cursory examination of these images shows that they have two internal subsequences. One can see that there are two similar subsequences 4-10 and 11-17, one where the male figure seems to dominate and the second where a female figure separates from and then reunites with the hermaphroditic body.
