For my post today, I want to share Sailesh Rao’s blog post about two TED talks. Before reading Sailesh’s post, make sure to watch these two TED talks to which he refers in the first paragraph:
Paul Gilding: The Earth is Full
Peter Diamandis: Abundance is Our Future
When you’re done watching the talks, have watched the subsequent Peter/Paul debate, and have read Sailesh’s blog post, ask yourself: If you were to bring these talks and the questions and issues they raise to others to educate and launch discussion, what would you hope to achieve through such a conversation? What would you want such discussions to create? Where should we go from here?
