Ola Andersson blogg aka Taz_1999

Välkommen till Ola Anderssons/Taz_1999 personliga två-språkiga humorblogg. Men tyvärr är den inte kul, på något av språken. Ledsen för det. Jag har dock en bra ide på att lösa det problemet, genom att lära mig mera. Ett tredje språk alltså: Eskimåiska. Hrurfru ghuujik illloooik. Hahaha!

My favourite TED Talks, part 2

TED Logo TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design and it's a yearly conference in Long Beach in California that started in 1984.

This is the second part in a series of blog entrys where I list the TED Talks I think are the most interesting, funny, moving or amazing, and this second set is from the second to last page of the complete list of TED talks. Today that page is page 47. Last page I wrote about this there were about 200 Talks, now there are 548. The last page then was 23, now it is 48.

My favourite TED Talks, part 2

  • Cameron Sinclair on open-source architecture
    TED Prize winner Cameron Sinclair talks about open-source architecture. By making designs that are open-source, as in free, you can do something about global housing crisis. The designs and thinking behind them are really interesting. I really like how the UN build stuff and how you really should build stuff by taking into account the needs of the people and the place the building will be. In the desert for instance it would be a good idea to design a house that collects rain when it rains and who is cool when it is hot outside, not actually hotter inside than outside as the UN houses are.
