learning, education, understanding how the world works, helping to change the world.
I wouldn't say an idea worth spreading, but a dream: Having TED in spanish (both a translation of TED materials, and a local TED in Colombia).
Now, an idea worth spreading: We are all learners. We're not just students, but learners through all our life.
UPDATE 2009: Well, now we have TED translations. One wish to go! :D
Anything! I'll try and listen, and learn all I can about it. However, I'm especially interested in education, learning and the possibilities of technology to improve our educational systems.
comedy, music (knowledge about it)
I don't remember how I found TED. I think it had to do with Jeff Han's presentation of his touchscreen technology, or maybe Wurman's Information Anxiety book. I'm really not sure.
But I have enjoyed every single minute I spend watching TED talks, or reading member contributions. I'm amazed at how many things we are able to do as a species, and at the same time how little do we know about our world.
I had the chance to attend TED@PalmSprings in 2009, which led me to get involved in the translation program. Right now I'm figuring out new ways to spread TED's message around.
