Been thinking a long time about this post, which to be totally honest is about the whole TED movement which as I see it is truely a spectacular way to use “blue sky” thinking to make this world a better place for you and me. Or…is it?
First the background. TED stands for “technology, entertainment and design” and is the name of an annual set of conferences that are held globally but got their start in Californian. Yup, that California, the one where most of the “wing-nut” fads and weirdo movements are born. Except in this case, the TED talks are far from anything else but real live visions disseminated for global consumption. And I mean global.
