Where's my jetpack? TED foreshadowing that either hit or missed.
TED has been having a good run over time, and has tried to keep itself at the crest of innovation and present it as it established a spot on the radar. Some of these radar blips got stronger and became part of our environment, others faded and fell off the radar and we've moved on.
Let's take a bit and dust off those "I saw it here first." or "What ever happened to...?" TED videos.
What has happened with Jonny Lee's WII hack?
Did Burt Rutan nail it?
Are we creating more people space in the ghettos?
Is there a talk that should be put back on the radar?
Is there an idea that grew through the TED talks that became second nature to us?
