TED TALK: Bonnie Bassler sheds light on how bacteria "talk"

This is another TED talk that is a stunner. Bonnie gives us the low-down on how bacteria are essential to our well-being. 
These tiny pieces of life coordinate their actions! How do they do that?Bonnie explains how bacteria are platform pieces in the puzzle of early ocean life producing oxygen byproducts and bioluminescence as well as their essential role in our own bodies. 

I'll be watching this a few more times!
