TEDTalk: Majora Carter – Greening the ghetto

I’ve read about Majora Carter in Guy Kawasaki’s new book Reality Check. Here’s her TEDTalk in 2006. It’s 18 minutes long but well worth it.

TEDTalks 2006: David Pogue – Simplicity Sells

No Comments

I’m a big fan of TED and would love to attend one of these conferences one day, but the cost is so prohibitive that I will just have to enjoy them through YouTube for the foreseeable future. One such talk that I only recently saw is this hilarious one given by David Pogue, a technology writer, journalist and commentator who spent ten years working in New York as a Broadway musical conductor, arranger, and keyboard player.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

Check out his talk on the frustrations of modern technology – you’ll love it.
