Ted Conversations in Person: The "Possible" Monumental Improvement of Ted
Chris Anderson: "Reading and writing are relatively recent inventions. Face-to-face communication has been fine-tuned by millions of years of evolution."
I couldn't agree more with you Chris Anderson! =)
Wouldn't it be amazing if Ted had a scheduling board where one could set up venues and have some brunch while discussing some very interesting topics like life skills, technology, psychological behavious, etc.?
More ideas could become more concrete if a group of people around 5-10 could gather and truly disect a specific video from the plethora of topics Ted has to offer through its Ted Talks.
I believe it could facilitate more recognition from a wider audience and gives Ted more transparency. This could possibly be revolutionary. If some average members from Ted could gather and have discussion in a similar fashion as "Book Clubs" discuss about books.
Some individuals' may not have the economic backings to fund a trip and attend the highly priced Ted Talks, but they could facilitate a smaller gathering at officially marked Ted locations around the world or it could be some random little coffee shop. That Would Be Most Awesome!
Having Ted Conversations in person could forge lifelong connections between individuals' and friendships would just be the obvious fact to state. Could also possibly create some new jobs for more official Ted Staffs that should be around to observe each conversation or something.
More Ideas That Are Heard, The More Ideas Are Spread!
Thanks for reading my thoughts. Feel free to share yours. =)
