TED Tuesday: Ideas Worth Spreading for the Week of 4/26

April 26th, 2011 Comments off

I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I figured I would feature the most recent lecture I’ve watched.  Supported fully by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Big History Project aims to promote a passion for learning, as well as a more comprehensive, big picture look at the history of how we got here and where we are. Bill Gates talks a bit about it here.

One of their big moments was the spectacular below lecture by Gates’ co-founder David Christian.  Along with Carolyn Porco’s Saturn talk, this is one of the more visually stunning lectures you’ll see.  Definitely worth the next 20 minutes.
