ted...

thanks to anonymous last week who is indeed a very great friend of mine i discovered ted.com...

i spent a riveting 18minutes listening to an 'allo allo' sounding philippe starck...a funny, entertaining and inspiring man...what a great charachter indeed...

its great to listen to someone who you admire and find that the personality holds up to the expectations...

i went to a david chipperfield lecture in the chq building in dublin a few years ago and was less than enthralled...not that i'm dissing the works of chipperfield, but in looking at his work and looking at the work of starck...therein lies the difference in style and creation - and maybe too therein lies the difference in personality...

i'm looking forward to watching some more fantastic talks on ted.com...

i hope you find time in your day occasionally to check this out...
