The TEDGlobal 2012 conference kicked off this week in Edinburgh, Scotland, with “Radical Openness” being its main theme. How do we learn from one another and relate to one another in an interconnected world? And how do ideas spread, as TED would say, in our global community? Those are the basic questions at hand.
Sometimes called a “performance philosopher,” the filmmaker Jason Silva offered up another one of his “philosophical shots of espresso,” creating a video that preaches the gospel of Radical Openness. Thinkers like Richard Dawkins, Matt Ridley, Steven Johnson, Kevin Kelly, and Ray Kurzweil provide the inspiration.
For the privilege of contemplating the concept of Radical Openness, audience members paid $6,000 a pop. The rest of us will get to watch the talks on video in due time.
