Peter Saul: Let's talk about dying
My brother has gone 2 days ago, he was hit by a trunk. I m very regretted we had never talked about death, we always thought we had lots of time, and then we did not spend family time too much, but now I know it is too late to Love family, to love body, to love life. Let's talk about death, talk about dying...

Evgeny Morozov: How the Net aids dictatorships
I cannot get the speaker's points, Net aids dictatorships? yes, that is becasue dictators can easily control and make use of internet, however, with the development of social media, such as twitter, facebook and other microblogs, it's much harder for goverments to control internet and informaiton sharing.
