I sat at dinner tonight with some amazing people. At the table were a psychiatry professor, an advertising executive, a creative director, a fundraiser, a consultant, a manager from Taiwan, a film producer and a high tech executive. We started with introductions and such, but it got amazing as we began to talk about quantum entanglement, psychology and DARPA. I just sat there in amazement as people connected, talked and shared ideas. It was amazing to see the COO of livescribe (Sasha Pesic) describe his company's pen and demo it to those at the table. It opened up another series of great discussions. Did I mention Morgan Spurlock is here - one of my favorite film makers (he may ask for a restraining order if I keep following him). Amy is making plenty of friends by the pool. I walked out before dinner and she had six people standing around her laughing and sharing their backgrounds - I am so glad she is here to share this with me.
This is what TED is all about - opening the mind and exhanging ideas. I look forward to sharing more with you the rest of the week. Right now - I am speechless.
