Yes. How web video powers global innovation

TED strikes again, with web video about web video, about creative crowdsourcing in the global community of soon to be 9 billion.

The talk is really about how the world is being educated and educating itself, where the learning cycle takes off exponentially.

He says something very telling about two-thirds of the way through, that reading is actually faster than watching information being talked about. Why do we watch video? Video tells something far more interesting and rich than text. More open to who we are. What do you have to share?
