Two inspirational TED talks have fueled my thinking today.
1) Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the inspirational author, talks about the danger of the single story. Link here. An amazing array of issues and thinking points raised such as: truth(s), labels, stereotypes, power.
2) Will Marshall (my brother), CEO of Planet Labs, talks about the revolutionary potential of micro satellites and the implications their images can have for human development. Thinking points: global citizenship, futures thinking, risk, surveillance, global mapping, data access. Link here
TED talks are a fantastic free resources for us all. For those looking for inspiration or motivation, or for those looking for new or up-to-date ideas on a particular topic, this is an excellent place to go (www.ted.com)
