TED Talks

Posted in ciência, sociedade, videos at 1:49 pm by Ana

O Bruno enviou-me este video de uma conferência espectacular! O software também me pareceu muito fixe. 😀

«Hans Rosling is professor of international health at Sweden’s world-renowned Karolinska Institute, and founder of Gapminder, a non-profit that brings vital global data to life. (Recorded February, 2006 in Monterey, CA.)»

«Once a year…

1000 remarkable people gather in Monterey, California

to exchange something of incalculable value

… Their ideas

What happens there has never been shared

… until now»



Fui ver o que era esta cena do TED Talks e descobri o site do TED || Technology, Entertainment, Design. Fiquei entusiamada. I just love this kind of stuff! 😀 Que sonho seria poder ir a um evento destes, ouvir estas pessoas, ver estas ideias. Infelizmente não é qualquer pessoa que consegue um convite e os preços são proibitivos para a pessoa média ($4400). Agora vou-me entreter nos próximos dias a ver os videos disponíveis! 🙂

Shit, this is the kind of thing and people we should learn about on the news! Not soccer, soccer, soccer, bad politics, insanely dumb “lives” of fires and such, and so on.
