TED is now complete which is a bit sad. I’m told re-engaging with the “real world” may prove a bit difficult. I will need to take time to process all that I’ve heard and seen. In no way can blog posts capture the environment, passion, and overall experience of TED. I am quite humbled to have had the chance to take part in this conference, and even more so to have been accepted to TED 2009. In the coming posts, I’ll offer some of my thoughts on what I’ve experienced.
NOTE: eman’s views has now moved to emansviews.com. I hope you’ll stop by.
During the last day of TED we watched a video produced by some resident TEDsters. It is a song and video, featuring a star cast, by will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas. Inspired by Barack Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ speech. It is an example of the world we now live in – where a group of individuals can quickly and easily help shape the public debate. I’m reminded of Majora Carter’s words from her memorable TED Talk… “By working together we can become one of those small rapidly growing groups of individuals who actually have the audacity and courage to believe we actually can change the world.”
