Eddie Obeng: Smart failure for a fast-changing world
Yesterday in Croatia I'd just finished giving a conference keynote when a conference delegate approached me and told me off severely for not doing more to promote this talk. He said "It's your duty to make sure every business person watches your TED talk!" He made me feel guilty as I've sort of been concentrating on my other projects. And so now I need your help - If you found the talk useful please tell everyone you can think of... Thanks

Peter Attia: Is the obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem?
Thanks Peter. Three thingsyou made me think... 1. Causality based research is more useful than correlation or incidence based research. (Remember if two things have a common cause they will always correlate) 2. Causes of insulin fluctuation, by factors such as coffee, are probably closer to the root of the problem 3 Concentration is not the same as quantity -It's not so much that the sugars are refined. it's just that once extracted and refined you consume hundreds or thousands more in quantity than you can from the source plant/ animal

Thanks for taking the time to discuss my TED talk. The December qubinar I organised on the Talk went really well and we had a great discussion but I am not going to dedicate any future qubinars to the talk . I do however run a monthly qubinar you could attend and if you let me know in advance I can stay around after the event to answer any detailed questions you have. The next qubinar topic is on the 17th of January 17:45 – 19:00 UK time You can apply for an entry pass from the WorldAfterMidnight.com website. Again, thanks eddie obeng

As long as you remember the green ink you'll remember that there are two states, turbulent and laminar and then you' wonder which best represents your world. And you might take a second to check that your thinking and actions are the best for the environment you are actually in rather than the one you recognise ....then I'm happy!

Again, thanks watching my TED Talk. Last month I organised a dynamic interactive discussion on the World After Midnight. It was a great success and so I’m doing it again on the 5th of December from 12:30 – 14:00 UK time. It's a chance to share and learn and explore with other people from around the world and for me to fill in the blanks for you. You can join from anywhere in the world since we will be using my ‘virt-real’ campus http://QUBE.cc If you’re interested, you’ll need an entry pass from Josh_Cheesman@PentacleTheVBS.com and to download the three-dimensional browser app from http://Pentacle.co.uk/QUBE-TechnicalGuide.htm Let’s Talk!

Thank you for discussing my Talk. There is no connection between me and Goldman Sachs and the TED organisation does not operate in the way you are suggesting. I was not paid to speak and if you take the time to research my publications you will find that I'm not a mouthpiece. I believe the sponsorship you refer to is simply support for TED overall.

Once again thank you for taking the time to view my TED Talk. I’m enjoying the range of discussion. Initial comments were of people wanting to know more about “How?” and now there are more about key takeaways and also how WAM is different in the 21st century of global cyber-interconnectedness from localised historically similar times. Let’s talk! I’m inviting people to join me (virtually) for an open discussion on the 24th of October from 12:30 – 14:00 UK time. Although you can participate from where ever you are in the world, you will need an entry pass from Josh_Cheesman@PentacleTheVBS.com and to download the three-dimensional browser for our QUBE app from http://QUBE.cc
