    Apr 11 2011: Since joining TED this winter, I have watched about forty percent of the available talks for applicability to my work. As I have found true in ancient teachers, modern teacher contributions to humankind can also be summed up according to a small number of major ideas. Might we agree on Aristotle's concept of "logos"? Adler's 102 great ideas come to mind as a wonderful start. If we re-tag the existing talks via a set of dedicated volunteers/translators. Most of what has been mentioned here can be achieved with some facility.
