Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies
I just wish more (Czech) politicians and voters watched this talk before decreasing taxes for rich and taking money from poor on basis of "everyone has to create their own luck" Unfortunately, in our society, it is very easy to make those comparatively richer (or middle class) to envy the "social benefits" given to the comparatively poor. As a result, the political parties aiming to widen the gap have the power and the situation becomes worse.

Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness
I guess the difference is he is not only talking about it, he is example of doing it life. Only the idea of not searching for bigger, but smaller appartement, is kind of life changing. Also he introduces this website: http://lifeedited.treehugger.com , which includes inspiration how to use smaller space, thus not having the possibility to buy so much stuff...

Steve Jobs: How to live before you die
I would never expect me to write this, as I prefer my Android phone and Windows 7 on Toshiba computer..and Ï think the apple mania is little bit exxagerated, however, Steve Jobs has changed the world a lot, and I would say certainly more than most of other people living in our times. Not everyone has to be Al Gore to save environment or Mother Theresa to heal others. I believe that his leadership style,driving the innovations, made online communication much easier all around the world, thus enabling every environment geek to spread green ideas more efficiently and thus helping the green issues, also, hiim surviving the cancer for quite a long time gave people hope they can fight diseases too. His innovations helped us, the humanity make another steps in the development. Also, he is inspiring many people that I know, they get courage from his story, thus realising things they might not have realised otherwise. So maybe, he did not directly fight for the "right" causes, but he definitely helped others who wanted to do so.

Adam Ostrow: After your final status update
Such a thought-provoking talk... As I am thinking about it, I am not sure if I want something else to live my life after I am dead. It is my life. Or if I would like to interact with my friends/family as robots/holograms after them being dead... it is painfull to think about them as dead, but creating them as AI is not much more comforting...at least to me. The image seems little bit horrific to me, imaging flat where we live with our family full of robo-us. Maybe I am too retrogressive.

Dean Kamen: The emotion behind invention
Also, I think the "war story" is stressing out the fact that WE did it to those kids (we = government sending them to fight) so probably WE should take care about them in more extraordinary way. Taking responsibility. I am not saying that people who lost their parts in accidents or due to illness should not be care about, but somehow to them. IT just happens, so there is little bit less strong moral coming from it, since it was not US who did it to them.
