Okay, I don't remember who I should credit for this link. I had heard about TED Conferences
before, but I hadn't followed up on the info until a blog recently pointed me to a link, which led me to this link:
TED Prize - About
For some strange, bizarre reason, surely reflective of some deep psychotic paranoia during a brief momentary lapse of an otherwise over bloated self-esteem, I almost didn't link to it. For shame on me, I know, but there was some twisted sense that my readers (there appear to be a few now, who are not just old friends and family), would out compete me to such a great prize. Hmmm, they say confession is good for the soul, I just sort of feel a little stupid. I don't think I'll do this again.
Anyway, the prize sure would be fun to win, and if I knew I could afford it next year, I'd certainly spend the $4k to attend, and whatever travel and hotel costs there were. This sounds like a grea event.
Oh, wait, that was the reason I didn't want to post this - pure, self-serving economics. If too many people were to go, I'd probably wind up in a cheap hotel 30 miles away from the event. Yeah. Yeeaah. That's the ticket. That's why I wasn't going to post the link.
Anyway, I also couldn't resist posting this link from their site (you will have to down load MacroMedia, if you don't already have it):
Hell, actually, there are a great deal of really neat links. You should just play around in the site, and you'll find lots of fantastic, creative people doing cool stuff.
