We Create the Future

TEDdvdchat.jpgClick and scroll down to see this trailer for a documentary film about the Technology Entertainment Design (TED) conference, called “the hottest gathering in the world” by the writers of Wired magazine. It sounds like a cooler, hipper, smaller World Economic Forum to me where issues of corporate responsibility, sustainability, climate change, and the role of new technologies are all discussed on a high level.
Al Gore, Peter Gabriel, Tony Robbins, Rick Warren, and environmentalist Majora Carter all make appearances. Click here to learn more about TED. The film, which is called “The Future We Will Create,” is available in video stores and through NetFlix.com. A friend I trust found it hugely inspiring.

I haven’t seen that particular video, but I highly, highly recommend the dozens of TED videos available at TED Talks: http://www.ted.com/talks
Robert Thurman saying that we can all be Buddhas, Jane Goodall on what separates us from the apes, and a truly incredible talk by Hans Rosling, explaining today’s real third world (instead of what turn out to be memories from the 60s — you’ll likely be stunned), are among the many amazing talks available for free download. Truly inspiring and eye-opening stuff.

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor. Being an effective communicator and a skillful public speaker was a dream of mine at the time. And still is. After some 30 minutes of prep with the station's hair-and-

Websites to Visit, Blogs to Read
Here are some blogs and websites I like. It's not a complete list. But it's a start. The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer." On the opening page of her site, you'll find a little slide show of her am

And Finally, This:
Place your burden at the feet of the Lord of the Universe who accomplishes everything. Remain all the time steadfast in the heart, in the Transcendental Absolute.
