Ten TED Things to Think About

Sorry, I love a good alliteration.

I came across this article on my traditional morning tech-news search and thought it was a pretty decent article.  Originally posted at CNN, Richard Galant presents 10 ideas from TED2010 that he feels are worth special note.

Overall, I think he is right on the money with most of these choices, which have a somewhat humanistic tone to them.

-Money can’t buy happiness but it can relieve stress.

-You are what you eat.

-Many children die needless because we choose not to fund programs and distribute the monies poorly.

-People will spend what it takes to believe in a placebo.

-A ukulele is good for any occasion… especially when stopping a war.

I think what I liked about the choices are that they can easily promote discussion and even a little outcry.  Anyway, take a look and let me know what you think.

    1. $60,000 a year would definitely make me happy…

    2. Ukuleles ARE appropriate for all sorts of occasions. By the way, Jake Shimabukuro, the musician they interviewed, is amazing:

    Playing which LG wrote this article is fun! My vote: Peter.

    Loving all the ideas coming out of TED Global 2010. Loved especially Jamie Oliver’s message.
