Sharing Ideas Worth Spreading

After my friend shared a link, suggested for thoughtfull spending of free time, I finally got addicted to this TED website. I find this a great project for sharing ideas "worth spreading", as academic organziation’s slogan states. TED talks offer free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers. Short, revealing, thoughtfull lectures that try to build community of "curious souls to engage with ideas and each other". Interesting isn’t it?
For instance check a video about the growing importance of social media in the world. While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.
