If You Take Away ANYthing at All...

...from being here, go to www.ted.com
Listen to the stuff there. It's insanely brilliant.

I have spent a delightful hour today listening to 30 minutes on the failure of markets for rural farmers in Africa (by this former World Bank economist who has now set up the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange or the ECEX) to an Indian neuroscientist talk about fascinating and rare brain disorders.

Trust me, it's simply brilliant

Isn't TED.com amazing? You should also listen to this Swedish researcher talk about global health and development trends using the coolest presentation software I've ever seen.

while I'm glad I have a fellow TED lover here, I'm a little concerned over the talk wherein I should take away the presentation rather than the actual talk.

But yeah, I'm listening to all of them, iTunes lets you subscribe to the video cast.
