TEDTalks (audio, video) – Wow!


Thanks Ken Pooley for pointing me to this site:

“Each year, TED hosts some of the world’s most fascinating people: Trusted voices and convention-breaking mavericks, icons and geniuses. The talks they deliver have had had such a great impact, we thought they deserved a wider audience. So now – with our sponsor BMW and production partner WNYC/New York Public Radio we’re sharing some of the most remarkable TED talks with the world at large. Each week, we’ll release a new talk, in audio and video, to download or watch online. For best effect, plan to listen to at least three, start to finish. They have a cumulative effect…”

I just finished watching the talk by Malcolm Gladwell (author of the Tipping Point and Blink) The talk discusses the ways that the adoption of variability theory can lead to greater happiness – and has some interesting ramifications when we think about church denominations and different forms of congregational polity…

And that’s just the first one!

    Thanks, Nick. Gladwell has been interesting, with a WoW every now and then. Apparently he is also useful to our ministries, as you suggest. The idea of making the gospel – and spaghetti sauce – available to all types and stripes! What an idea!
    I am glad to know about TEC
