Clay Shirky on Institutions vs. Collaboration

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

This video is now a half decade old – but is still every bit as revolutionary now as it was then.

Janine Benyus on biomimicry in action (TED Tuesday)

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

ted_logoWelcome to TED Tuesdays on the blog. Each Tuesday, I will post a video from TED with a little commentary from me on why I think it’s worth sharing.

I thought I would kick off 2010 with a little science. It has always occurred to me that there were solutions to many of our problems all around us – but I have never seen this demonstrated as effectively as it is here.

Rory Sutherland on Life lessons from an ad man (TED Tuesday)

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

ted_logoWelcome to TED Tuesdays on the blog. Each Tuesday, I will post a video from TED with a little commentary from me on why I think it’s worth sharing. I don’t want to compete with TED itself, so I’ll be reaching back several months for these.

For this last TED Tuesday post in 2009, I thought it would be nice to lighten things up a bit. This hilarious presentation by ad-man Rory Sutherland is a nice counter to the sometimes overwhelming topics covered in TED Talks.

There’s also a GREAT Canadian advertising story about 2/3rds the way through…

Is Gordon Brown as brilliant as he seems?

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

I’m watching a very recent TEDtalk (that will appear in a future TEDtuesday) where Chris Anderson interviews British Prime Minister Gordon Brown about global ethics and global citizenship.

All I can say is WOW. If this guy is serious and isn’t just blowing TEDsmoke, he’s an outright revolutionary…

Is this the real Gordon Brown? Is he as much a revolutionary world leader as this interview suggests?
