THNKR is honored to present excerpts from the WWW conference. The WWW conference, created by author, architect, and TED founder, Richard Saul Wurman, generates compelling conversations by pairing "amazingly interesting individuals prompted by a question."

Theoretical physicist, Jeffrey West, explores the scaling principles of biology and how they compare to those of urban populations. The results are profound and alarming.
