What extra credit did you do today to make the world better?
This is not a project to feed your own ego, so don't feel bad about sharing. It is a question—a dialogue—to give and receive inspiration. If your job is helping people or ecological restoration or national defense, don't list those. This is about the extra things we do, and is a way to turn TED from words to actions.
It is also not a project about evaluating other people's actions unless they ask for such feedback. Let's keep the Golden Rule in front of us, though, as a boundary line for fair and foul contributions. As it proceeds, it will also be interesting to hear stories of how our acts and those of other contributors have affected us.
Let's see what you've got :-D
