Put Some TED on your Pod: Cameron Sinclair, Al Gore, Majora Carter, and More


Sitting at this year’s Aspen Ideas Fest with Tom Riley of TED, watching Sun Microsystems founder Bill Joy diss on blogs, we were whispering back and forth about whether the remarkable and high priced panels and talks of the Fest would be podcast to the public. Well, to my knowledge Aspen Ideas hasn’t done it, but TED has. The TED Conference (Technology Entertainment Design) is a yearly geniusfest held in Monterey, California. This year’s gathering hosted some of our favorite TreeHuggers: Al Gore, Cameron Sinclair, and Majora Carter (pictured above). With this year’s conference they’ve taken the event one step closer to open source knowledge sharing by making their TEDTalks publicly available. Watch some of these talks on their site or get them on your iPod and geek out on the bus. Some Huggerish highlights will include the aforementioned stars, plus: epidemiologist and head of Google.org Larry Brillaint; Wikipedeia founder Jimmy Wales, founder of the One Laptop Per Child organization Nicholas Negroponte, and biologist Richard Dawkins. The TED site suggests watching at least three from the get go. I concur. :: TEDTalks
