TED

It stands for technology, entertainment and design. And it is one of the most anticipated and unique conferences of the year in the US. Why? Because it brings fresh ideas and speakers together on a broad range of topics--ecology, world health, technology, social development.

And it is now available via VoD for the 2006 Conference held earlier this year. Go to this link. You will see inspiring presentations, many from people who have made something out of nothing. Majora Carter started with $10K grant and leveraged it into a $3MM project that is changing the face of the South Bronx, one of the toughest, most depressed neighborhoods in the US--check out Tony Robbins who also started with very little, to become one of the leading personal coaches in the US to businesses (he is panned in the US for his commercialism, but after you see him you may feel differently); Hans Rolling who gives one of the best presentations ever on powerpoint; and more. It will make you think and hopefully you will come away with a sense of what is possible.

These are a few good presentation which have a passion, frustration, and victory. Some issues are a bit irritative, but are worth to hear!.
