TED: ideas worth spreading
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds.
This annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives.
"We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other. "
I decided today to link you to a short clip, David Gallo's jaw-dropping footage of amazing sea creatures, including a color-shifting cuttlefish, a perfectly camouflaged octopus, and a Times Square's worth of neon light displays from fish who live in the blackest depths of the ocean.
A pioneer in ocean exploration, David Gallo is an enthusiastic ambassador between the sea and those of us on dry land.
