An idea worth spreading
Let's make world a better place by spreading good thoughts; person to person, heart to heart. Let's not rush to "mark" others, let's be simple, honest and truthful.
Let's find out why we are who we are, what to do with our lives and how to do it in time.
I'm passionate about
Communities; the synergy of individuals with the same vision; interaction of ideas worth spreading. Oh, and coffee. Black.

My TED story
It all started in 2007, when I watched a TEDTalk named "The Paradox of Choice" by Barry Schwartz for the first time.
At the time I was confused, I didn't know anything about my desires and expectations. I was trying to fit in to "routines", not sure if I WANT them or not. That simple low quality talk by that simple wise man, changed my life: I chose to be simple. I try to think simple and act complex.
Being a part of TED community, watching, translating and sharing TEDTalks, contributing in TED conversations and other TED activities is a part of my daily life. I hope and help TED change other lives as well as mine.
