Those of you who were following my blogging from TED 2006 can now get a much better sense of the TED experience (which is coming to Africa next June!)

Via the TEDTalks website, “Each year, TED hosts some of the world’s most fascinating people: Trusted voices and convention-breaking mavericks, icons and geniuses. The talks they deliver have had had such a great impact, we thought they deserved a wider audience. So now, for the first time, we’re sharing them with the world at large… Each week, we’ll release a new talk to inspire, intrigue and awaken the imagination. For best effect, plan to listen to at least three, start to finish. (They have a cumulative effect.) If you have a curious soul and an open mind, we think you’ll be hooked.

The six talks that have been posted up so far (you can either watch video or listen to the podcasts) were among my favorites. If I had to pick two must-listens, I’d recommend Majora Carter for sheer INSPIRATION and Sir Ken Robinson because he reminded me of the joys of learning and because I dream for the day when we will see creative learning encouraged in schools across Africa. And Hans Rosling you gotta watch, not listen. His graphics were amazing. And David Pogue who writes a tech column for the NY Times was funny.

OK, just check all of them out :-)

(fantastic job June!).
