An idea worth spreading
A change of sensibility is needed for us to care about every other person in this planet. If we can organize our spare time into meaningful, efficient work, we can achieve great things. Many projects that do this have appeared (wikipedia, twitter, quora, etc.) and the cumulative organized knowledge and energy of the people in the world will solve current world problems.

My TED story
I first attended TED in 2009 in a very difficult time, while my father was fighting cancer. I was delighted to find a crowd so capable and willing to help the world. While I was there and as a result with a talk with Tim Berners-Lee about Open Data, an idea started taking shape. Almost one year later that idea is The Wikilfie Foundation (wikilife.org) and has already released the first beta app for the iPhone for individuals to collect their health habits and conditions and share it anonymously to create a database of health information for the whole world. TED really was a catalyst for me, as it has been to many.
