A number of years ago I was employed as an audio technician, and had the wonderful opportunity to travel around the country, recording people say interesting things. Out of all the events that I got to attend, TED was my absolute favorite. I’d come home boiling over with inspiration and enthusiasm for technology. If you aren’t familiar with it, check out some of the video that they’ve graciously made available for free. I just watched a very cool clip with Pattie Maes and Pranav Mistry about MIT’s “Sixth Sense”.
