TED & James Nachtwey

Filed under: Uncategorized — alexboerner @ 3:19 pm

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has had me hooked ever since a friend began poking me in the ribs, telling me all about the presentations on the organization’s website. They have an impressive collection of speeches by inspiring people who are exploring the limits of how we think about anything from science to food to marketing to music to whatever, all in the interest of obtaining greater knowledge of the world both around us, and within us.

Photographer James Nachtwey won a TED prize in 2007 granting him $100,000 and his “wish to change the world.”

“I’m working on a story that the world needs to know about. I wish for you to help me break it, in a way that provides spectacular proof of the power of news photography in the digital age,” he said during his speech.

The story will be broken tomorrow in grand and alarming fashion no doubt. Help spread the word.
