What year would have the best TED panel of all time, if we had a time machine and could gather people living at the time
Given a time machine that would let us gather ted speakers living at that same moment in history when would you choose.
Would you go for 1468 when you could pair a young Christopher Columbus (1451 – 1506) with Johannes Gutenberg ( 1398 – 1468), and also have Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) and the mathematician and astronomer Ali Qushji (1403 – 1474).
Or would you you choose 1506 when you can still have Columbus and da Vinci, but now joined by Machiavelli (1469 – 1527), Michelangelo (1475 - 1564) and Vasco da Gama (1469 – 1524).
