Bright ideas - TED - Wellington Webstock

Don't be surprised, but the truth is I love this blogging business - however, sometimes the wire leading out from the last jump point becomes so stretched you start to wonder how you will ever catch up with what has been going on.

When that has happened before, the temptation is to freeze out and then beat yourself up for being lazy and idle, when the truth is the opposite - life is so busy, and the episodes coming at you so interesting and persuasive, you give it another day. and then you end up here - two weeks latter and not a blogging dish washed. So enough!
First up, and still to be downloaded onto the ipod thingie are two separate seminar sets. The last Wellington Web Stock, and the latest TED series.

Wellington Web Stock
I didn't get to this - many others did - including three from mcgovern online, all of whom testified that it was the business. My consolation was to be offered a conference bag. This was a real gift. As others have pointed out, it is a very cool bag. Trouble is I feel a bit weird using it. It's as if I don't have the rights, cos I wasn't there. Perhaps that will change when I have gone though some of the presentations online, here.

Also worth checking out is the latest offerings from TED, including their three TED prize winners. I especially enjoyed listening to author Dave Eggers asks the TED community to personally, creatively engage with their local public schools.

He talks about how his 826 Valencia tutoring center inspired others around the world to open their own volunteer-driven, wildly creative writing labs. He also gives a call to action - ask a teacher "How can I help?" There is also a web site - Once Upon a School.

By the by, since I first blogged on TED I have had a couple of conversations on starting a TED NZ? Any suggestions?

For the record the conversations seem to polarise people - would TED NZ be a democratic forum where people can talk about their projects, a bit like Wellingtons 7x7 - or, my own preference - are we talking about inviting inspirational experts in their field to give a 20 minute speech of their life.

I know- sounds expensive - but a kind and friendly sponsor could solve all that?
