Jim Melfi Posted over 4 years ago Krista Tippett: Reconnecting with compassion TED is marvelous in giving us new ways to bend our minds around a subject. Such a moment came to me today when Krista said that we can think of compassion as a technology. A thoughtful and thought-provoking way of thinking about compassion. A coupling of terms that may excite others to look at compassion in a new way. Thank you Krista. Jim Melfi, videotalks.org.
