A TED talk on how bacteria communicate

It is not directly related to ME/CFS, but bacterial overgrowths were discussed in other threads, so some might be interested.
Here is the link, it is very easily understandable.

Bonnie Bassler discovered that bacteria "talk" to each other, using a chemical language that lets them coordinate defense and mount attacks. The find has stunning implications for medicine, industry -- and our understanding of ourselves.

Many young people I know spend hours watching different talks, just educating themselves. I was thinking - how about a talk about CFS? I have no idea about how talks are organized (who suggests, how you apply for it etc.). I imagine some experienced doctor like Nancy Klimas would do a good job. I consider TED one more possible channel.
