Birth of a Word

That is crazy!  This guy collected 200TB of video and audio data which roughly equates to the first five years of his childs life at home.

He did some very interesting research on child development, specifcially how a child learns new words.  This research also had some interesting implications in the media world as well, but I wont spoil that for you.

Enjoy the video!  I know I did.
