Links: Interesting talks/videos

I thought I would share some very stimulating and interesting videos or talks from the interweb and in particular TED.

I was looking at the Ted Prize 2009 winners and watched Jill Tarter: Why the search for alien intelligence matters

It was a fascinating watch and it reminded me of some of the motivations people often refer to when using Social Media or Social Networking tool – “I feel i can connect with people and feel part of something much bigger and organic”.

Barry Schwartz: The real crisis? We stopped being wise -He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world. He also states “rules and procedures maybe dumb but they spare you from thinking”

Enjoy
