"Work! I don't work, I explore!" said Charles Elashi, the director of the NASA propulsion laboratory. Such energy characterized TEDx Beirut, a day-long gathering where thinkers, activists, scientists, and artists shared fascinating ideas and inspiring personal stories with over 1,000 attendees.
Andy Warner is a second-year masters student at the Center for Cartoons Studies in Vermont. His recently published comic, The Man who Built Beirut, tells the story of the assassination of late Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. It is a brilliant comic that documents a transformative period in Lebanon's political history and speaks to the vibrancy of the Lebanese comic scene.
