Back to the Start
A wonderful ad - simple, honest, accurate, intelligent, human, beautifully designed -, reminding us of all the benefits we gain (and offer to others) by respecting Mother Nature and all living souls. Let's all get back to the start - it's healthier, it's smarter, it's the right thing to do.

Do you have a suggestion for TED? Something we could do better?
Hi Will, Thank you for letting us know, once more, that our opinions matter. The TED's website is nicely designed, with clear, organized and effective ideas and content. These new digital TEDBooks, however, don't have a good design - the main cover with that comics' baloon of speech is wrong, I'm sorry to say; they are not attractive and, what is worse, they decrease the content's value and divert the reader's eyes. My suggestion is: those are not comic books. Will you please take it off...? Thank you.
