I remember the first time I visited the a TED conference (it stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design) website. Jarrett, a good friend who I blogged about, introduced me to a video from Aubrey de Grey called Why we age and how we can avoid it. de Grey has very interesting ideas regarding the disease called aging and what modern science and engineering can accomplish to minimize and prevent the causes and effects of aging and dying. I instantly became hooked on TED!a
Since then I have become a regular visitor to the TED site, logging on and listening to talks ranging from evolution and god, to design and emerging technologies. This is one of the few places that I can go and get inspired by the stories and the vision of incredible thinkers and doers. TED expanded my view of the relationship between ideas, design, innovation, and the development of technology to benefit every part of humanity.
