Dan gives a very brief introduction for TEDxFlourCity by describing Rochester's history in flour milling. He will talk about the diverse types of bread as a metaphor for human culture. He ends by asking the audience to break the loaves of bread waiting under their seats and sharing it with their neighbors who have none.
