Ideas Worth Sharing

If you have never watched or listen to a TED talk (www.TED.org) please go to their site now.  The greatest thinkers, innovators, entertainers, scientists, and writers have given brilliant and passionate talks about their area of expertise.  TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading.

Bruno Giussani, TED’s European director has said the following about their TED Global conference taking place right now in Oxford:

“Someone has written, in presenting the conference, that good news is a species that is becoming extinct. If you look at any newspaper … we are bombarded by bad news, but if you dig, if you look under the surface and search, you will find a lot of new technology, new science, new art, new ways of thinking, politically, socially, philosophically that may give you, when you string them all together, a more optimistic view of the future.”

I couldn’t agree more with him.  While we live in the midst of famine, disaster, disappointment and glorification of bad behavior, I often meet or hear of people that want to live in a different way and are building a value system based on tolerance, inclusion, and service.

I know if you are reading this, you are one of those people.  You and I may have come to this point by different paths but we both want to find and communicate with others who like us are empowering ourselves by digging within for the tools that allow us to live with inspiration.

This is thank you to everyone who has read my posts, thought about, commented on them, shared with others, sent in ideas, and keep exploring ways to make this world a little bit better.

All my best,
