Loved this talk by Navi Radjou: Creative problem-solving in the face of extreme limits #TED : http://on.ted.com/j0mwG
A great talk on frugal innovation with amazing examples of how creative people many from informal training or some with very little training are improving peoples lives with smart creative disrupting innovations. A great talk if you already know about frugal innovation. Awesome if you are just hearing about it. Great ideas on how to structure your business for maximum market penitration in developing countries.
Id love nothing more than to see amazing long lasting life enhancing designs arising out of the skeletons of current expensive, fast burning technology.
Inspiring random acts of… well, randomness, since 1986
If you watch one TED talk ever it must be this one. Other than being an out right genius and a fantastic business success, this man gets life like no one else I’ve ever witnessed. Why wait until you are dying to do all the things you ever wanted to do? Why not start doing them now. Why are we married to our companies?
Truly inspiring and thought provoking. This is a wonderful start to the answer of how do we spend our lives.
Don’t start creating obstacles,just start thinking how we can live better, work better and be better, then implement from there.
I am not concerned over any one country or nation. None of them exist in isolation, though some hope to, largely to the detriment of the people therein.
I am concerned about humankind.
I am worried about the whole, we have enough people squabbling over tiny fractions for personal gain.
I want to make a larger contribution.
I want to be part of the free flow of ideas, the honey that can only be produced with the immense work of an enormous amount of individuals.
Free to move.
Free to explore and create and tinker and play.
Free to be human beings.
Political borders stifle our collective future. We elect kings that rule over us in their land that we gave them.
We so quickly give up our right to self governance. Which makes it easier to accept and hand over authority of ourselves.
If the crowd wills it, it will be law.
I was borne to this planet, to this universe just as you were. Who is anyone to curb my wonderlust?
How dare they!?
No one would trust the majority of people in the world with their children, with their lives and yet these are the people we allow to choose rulers that determine the future of our children and of our lives.
Perhaps we trust to little. We expect too little from others.
We fear the freedom that self-governance and self-reliance would give us.
