My TED story

I am witnessing with all of you the evolution of a new method of creative innovation and sharing which no king or potentate has ever had access to I feel we all mutually value this beyond explanation.it is something of a sacred trust. TED is an excellent vehicle for complex propositions adn creative potentials. where we take this is up to each of us. Even if all we do is breathe easier adn relax more into this process called life. I personally value the bio photons of Nature and Solar photosynthesis and the foundations the basics of life. the technologies only serve the purpose of distributing the basics equitably and fairly and still rewarding creative solutions that can work and which really inspire.

Malcolm Gladwell: The unheard story of David and Goliath
Love this new book by Malcolm Gladwell Especially this soptry that opens it. Gladwell always gleans such relevant stories and anecdotes and data. The key theme here is so important for our times in which it seems the resources of the creatives and middle class and others are so limited that there is not adequate ability to respond to well enforced and funded organizations and monied interests. In fact collectively we have a power far exceeding any known element. especially when you add the networking abilitiy and its effect on global sysnergy I suggest getting the audiodbook version of David and Golitah . I have reviewed it on Amazon.

Ken Robinson: How to escape education's death valley
Ken is talking about creativity and flexibility not ultimate answers. No one is suggesting simple answers just highlighting the failure to address the real issues and it is not just in schools but throughout society AND at the same time immense creativity is adjusting the view and the goals (when creativity and new insights are embraced and utelized effectively) Humor is lovely as it is not rigid just observational. You are left with your system as is and you are all free to innovate or leave it entirelyand no it is NOT easy ...especially without creativity and renewal. So Sir Ken is not suggesting easy solutions just reminding over and over that creativity and diversity is a key. Read his books to really get his wide perspective. Read the books ...20 minute TED talks are not enough to contain broad ideas.
