    And so to TED

    Monday 30th June 2008, 5:52am

    Word reaches me that Bruno Giussani may be in town this weekend.  As the European Director of TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), the highly rated conference, Bruno’s blog, Lunch Over IP is well worth a look. 

    The main TED site is worth spending time on too, and the videos of TED talks have been downloaded over 50 million times.  I reckon that a link to these talks should be sent to every school and university in the country. 

    One (amongst many) to watch is this speech by the British conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, Benjamin Zander (pictured, and also in town this week). The point he makes at the very end is so powerful (and worth waiting for) that it had me thinking all weekend.
