Each year, more than 1,000 of the biggest movers and shakers in the world are invited to attend the TED Conference (I believe it’s invite-only) to hear about some of the most cutting edge ideas on the planet. Now there’s a conference I’d like to attend. The 2007 conference is currently underway, but if you would like to see some of the presentations, I’ve found them here at Google. I know the word gets used a lot, but these presentations are truly inspiring. In particular, I like what Sir Ken Robinson has to say about education.
P.S. You can find more of the TED Talks videos here at BMW. (TED’s own site seems to be down for the moment.)
