A Cirque du Soleil of the mind
25 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I was able to get an invitation to be one of the 1000 to attend this conference, I would not be able to come up with the $6000 needed to register. Now, I no longer have to. Even if i cannot mix with the superstars in the world of innovative design, and science, and arts, I can still enjoy their presentations.

This film gives you just a taste of what the movers and shakers experiences. People from Google, Microsoft, people with ideas meeting people with money and entrepreneurial skills. People from arts and people who are making a difference in the world.

Innovators in theoretical physics share the stage with the creator of the $100 laptop. Ideas in how we will interact with computers are viewed along with new ways of viewing and sharing data.

People like Majora Carter talk about wanting to make sustainability sexy while schmoozing with Al Gore, who exhorts us to get our act together.

Award winners are encourages to rub the magic lamp and present a bold idea that could change the world. Bono did it in the past and One.org was created. Out of this year's conference comes Pangea Day.

Now, everyone can share the experience and ideas on Ted.com. It may be post-conference, but the inspiring and innovative speeches are there to watch over and over. Check it out.
