Trying to Tame TED

So ... TED.


I had thought I would blog daily from it, but the experience was so overwhelming (20-25 speakers a day) I found myself unable to encapsulate what was occurring.


I'm still trying to distill and synthesize the amazing experience. While I do that you might check out the conference blog at TED Blog.


One powerful observation I can offer as a teaser of my own thinking is the following: Many of the speakers and performers have devoted their life to the pursuit of a single question or idea that they believe can change the world and make a meaningful contribution to enhancing the lives of others. If you were to focus on only one question or idea for the rest of your life, what would it be?
