If you could choose any historical figure to give a TED Talk, who would it be and why?

This one is pretty open-ended. I'm curious to know who you would choose for a TED Talk, why, and maybe what you think their "idea worth spreading" might be.

  • Apr 10 2013: Charles Darwin

    I would enjoy what he would have to say about the flowering of biological knowledge and the incredible applications of his concept of biological evolution since his original introduction of his book and theory.

    On the other hand, it would be nice to know it the ideas of creative design, etc., in an effort to discredit evolution would have surprised him. This is such a rich topic it would just be nice to hear his thoughts no matter the specific areas of concern or interest.

    It would also be interesting to know if he found it difficult to get up to speed on all the new related information devloped since his original work and knowledge on the subject.
