The New Harvard University


Many of my friends are using Ted.com as the “New Harvard University” – i.e. the place where thinking people go to be exposed to thought provoking educational material. I’m amazed at how fast the site has grown and the diversity of the content. Conversely, I’m also amazed at how many people haven’t seen it yet. You’ll see what I mean when you check out one of the videos. Here’s a link that will provide 19 minutes and 26 seconds of inspiration and provocation. Feel free to comment on my blog if you’ve had a reaction (positive or negative) to the talk and the site. Again…here’s the link
