TED Talks

TED has some of the best people talking about the world. Each one of them is worth listening to and now these talks have been made available to everyone. Click here for the talks. This is yet another example of the internet being the great leveller. More on that later.

Personally, I loved Cameron Sinclair's and Hans Rosling's talks, especially from the point of view of sustainable development for the world. I also really liked Sir Ken Robinson, maybe even more that Cameron's and Hans' talk. I couldn't agree less with Ken on the point that creativity is as important as literacy when we think of education in this day and age. Also, I like the way Cameron says that, today, we have an opportunity...opportunity, not responsibility, to get together and develop socially responsible organizations that work for world development.
