What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?

Imagine you have complete access to some of the best speakers in the world, TED Fellows, the TED Team and a bunch of the most talented TEDx organizers on the planet. Now imagine all of this happening in Doha, Qatar on 16th April, 2012.

I'm fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the TEDxSummit in Doha and now I ask you to share with me a question or an idea which needs to be heard.

I'll try my very best to ask/share it with them :)

  • Apr 11 2012: Keeping it simple stupid. Nature has devised simple ways to solve its problems and it has done all of the trial and error work over hundreds of millions of years. So nature knows best what works well and what does not. We should sit back, open our minds, and observe how nature works and extrapolate what we see to formulate ideas that might reveal how nature might fix our own problems in a simple way. Use the concentrated magnified power of the sun to power desalinate sea water through a distillation process. We are then on our way to solving a huge terraculture problem.
