If you guys haven't checked out the other blogs from TED, I would suggest you do. Ethan Zuckerman has a great post addressing some issues that are coming up about TED in the blogisphere (smugness, exclusiveness, etc.) I think he's onto something with his post. The only thing I will add is to agree that like Tom and Ethan I am not a star, or rich and furthermore most of the people – the vast majority of people – I know at TED are not either. We all have exactly two things in common: we love ideas and we're lucky enough to attend.
Every year there is a TED moment. We all talk about it. It might be something grand like Bill Stone announcing his plan to put a gas-station in space or simple like learning how to tie your shoes properly. This year it was singing in German with Benjamin Zander. Here's a taste of Zander's brilliance. This is nowhere near as electrifying as the TED experience so stay tuned to TED.com for his talk. Also posted is a vlog from Tom, who I met at the beach party after TED. He sums it up nicely.

The three of us got caught up in the wonder of the last two days. There is a lot to blog about, but frankly we didn't want to split our attention from TED and now we're all in transit. I will be posting quite a bit next week, and I think Dave and Todd will as well. Cheers fuckers.
