Courageous Young Man at TED Global 2009


TED talks is a gathering of some of the greatest minds, mathematicians, and action oriented people from around the globe.  Each speaker gives a 20 minute talk or presentation.  I find TED talks  insightful, courageous, full of wit and inspiration. Visit the TED website  to watch archived videos.

In late 2006, a Malawian newspaper first wrote about a remarkable young man William Kamkwamba. Being from a remote rural village north of the capital city makes his story even more amazing. This is the story of a young student turned inventor.  A true story of Living in Courage.  William will be one of the speakers at TEDGlobal this year.  I quote “TEDGlobal is TED’s twin annual conference. It will feature four days of provocative talks, relevant discussions, technological boldness and amazing performances that will take us beyond the obvious. The program is designed to explore and make visible “The Substance of Things Not Seen” — this year’s theme.
