Malcolm Gladwell 2011 TED Talk: The strange tale of the Norden bombsight

I really enjoyed Malcolm Gladwell 2011 TED Talk: The strange tale of the Norden bombsight.

Have a look of the first iteration of this talk delivered at University of Toronto. Plus my previous addition to my list of Quotes I Love and Quotes I Love (videos).
