At DSMW, we are a fiscally conservative and pro technology. We believe in the power of ideas to change things. That is why we love TED.
While a little left leaning at times, depending on the speaker, it is, for the most part, inspiring and elucidating no matter which side of the aisle you call home. It is totally thought provoking, if you go in for that kind of stuff… We do.
We especially love this quote from tim Jackson’s economic reality check:
“It’s a story about us. People. Being persuaded to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need to make impressions that don’t last on people we don’t care about”
You may agree or disagree with his the rest of his presentation, but you can’t deny his brilliant summary of our irrational consumption.
