My TED story

I stumbled upon and couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing. A couple of years later, I heard about a group of people organizing a TEDxWaterloo (my city). I vaguely knew one of the organizers, so I casually volunteered to help out with some of the writing. And like all things TED, it become part of my life. I love TED, TEDx events, TEDxWaterloo and most of all I love the people who have the ideas worth spreading. To me this is a the global connection.

What's your TED habit?
Because I have a gadget on my iGoogle page, I can see at a glance what's new, and because I am a writer, I am easily distracted by ideas. There is no special time of day for a TED talk, it can happen any time. And because I am part of the TEDxWaterloo organization, I am prone to watching many TED talks. TED is my brain fuel.
