    I just wanted to share a remarkable organization and their website. This org sponsors conferences on the most innovative and creative ideas you can imagine. Folks that contribute are selected for unique insights and presentations. The topics are MOSTLY science and tech based -- but there also is a wealth of topics in politics, economics, and other humanities.

    The organization site is TED: Ideas worth spreading. One of my favorite presentations is on the history of world poverty..

    Hans Rosling's new insights on poverty | Video on TED.com

    You have YEARS of entertaining, beautiful 10-15 minute presentations that will blow your mind. THere's a general topical index you can use and go from there.

    Have fun.. Enjoy... And above all. Pass it on.. Face it. TV sucks. If you want better brain food -- here it is.
