What do you have to be grateful for today?
Universal Language it is!! I must say I'm grateful I came across gems, as TED shed spotlight on Nellie Mckay and Regina Spektor. Truly a few of the most amazing, GENUINE singer-songwriters of all-time.

What's your favorite word?
Hi Lindsay. I appreciate your thought. I tend to associate it with Nietzsche’s stand on faith and the pursuit of truth, either worldviews which are bound to save or destroy us. “Every true faith is infallible. It performs what the believing person hopes to find in it. But it does not offer the least support for the establishing of an objective truth. Here the ways of men divide. If you want to achieve peace of mind and happiness, have faith. If you want to be a disciple of truth, then search.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Who would you nominate among the TED community to give a talk worth spreading? In a virtual TED conference?
I believe there's a need to focus on a single group/goal to avoid redundancy. I am personally moved by most of the insights provided by active users of TED conversations. The opportunity to hear more from them is an incredibly unique idea. It shouldn't escape us though that other TEDsters may not be on the same wavelength because they may concentrate on different facets of this platform. Getting in touch with those who responded to this great idea and were thus nominated might be the first step for this to take shape.

Who would you nominate among the TED community to give a talk worth spreading? In a virtual TED conference?
This is incredibly exciting! Before I even got involve in doing TEDx, I was absorbed by how these great talks generate equally amazing dialogues, and are able spark new ideas and initiatives which I see is the ultimate goal. Unlike the one I’ve initially posted(http://www.ted.com/conversations/792/why_not_have_a_page_for_intere.html) which didn’t take off because of the fact that TEDx has been mentioned and it basically focuses on the local voices within the community. But then, we have utterly interesting group of people who give invaluable contributions in TED conversations. I’m certain we have the tools to bring the spotlight on them. I’m beginning to realize that this is one of the reasons why I started a TEDx in the first place. A lot more TEDsters I wish to nominate, first off.. • Birdia Tak Wai Chan – Poetry as your IWS • Genevieve Tran –TED talks to ponder on • Jimmy Strobl – TED bringing wonder • Nic Marks – Bliss • Debra Smith – Cognitive styles • Linda Woodard -The Real Art of Teaching • Meher Like Spring Rabbit - Pursuit of knowledge • Nicholas Lukowiak - The young Ken Robinson • Muhammad Aizat Zainal Alam - Faith

Rory Stewart: Time to end the war in Afghanistan
such powerful quote, "If we can often do much less that we pretend, we can do much more than we think." As John Esposito ends his book.. "Our challenge is to better understand the history and realities of Muslim world and to recognize the diversity and the many faces of Islam. This approach lessens the risk of creating self-fulfilling prophecies that augur the battle of the West against a radical Islam or a clash of civilizations."
