TED India, Here I Come

Blogging and tweeting will be light for the next few days. I was selected as a TED Fellow a few weeks ago, and will be heading off to Mysore tomorrow for TED India. I could choose to either liveblog and tweet furiously from there, or I could sit back and immerse myself in the conference. Given the quality of people I’ll get to meet, and the usual standard of the TED Talks, I think the latter option is wiser.

Here’s my TED Profile—and here’s an interview of mine taken for the occasion.

And some of my favourite TED Talks:

Andrew Mwenda takes a new look at Africa.
Hans Rosling shows the best stats you’ve ever seen.
Steven Pinker on the myth of violence.
Dan Dennett on dangerous memes.

Really, there are so many wonderful TED Talks that picking out a handful of favourites seems sacrilegious. See them all!
