Kathryn Schulz On Regret (Premiere)

Early one morning a couple of months ago, as I was rushing around trying to get my act together in time to catch a train to New York, I filled a thermos with coffee, reached into the fridge, grabbed an unopened half-gallon of milk — one of those fancy, bottled-in-glass-like-the-good-old-days kinds — and promptly dropped the entire thing on the kitchen floor.

Here’s what happened next. The glass shattered upward and outward, in spectacular, slow-motion-film-worthy fashion; I later found shards in the cat’s dish, the salad bowl, and the blender, two shelves up. The half-gallon of milk set about demonstrating some principle of physics involving volume and surface area, or maybe some principle of religion involving loaves and fishes. Either way, in under three seconds, vast, improbable quantities of it were everywhere: soaking one leg of my jeans, running in lewd streams down the oven, flowing through a gap under a closed door and into the next room. As I stood there missing my train, I had a flash of insight. The reason we are instructed not to cry over spilled milk is that, if you spill enough of it, crying (or its adult analog: cursing) is the only natural response.

Naomi Klein: Addicted To Risk

Looking at photos from the November spill, so eerily similar to the photos from BP’s April 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s clear we are still looking for energy in risky places, and largely unprepared to deal with the consequences of failure. One year after the BP spill (which workers soaked up, in large part, with straw bales), the X Prize Foundation announced winners of a million-dollar incentive to develop new tools to clean up oil spills: And many others are looking at this problem too, including one of TED’s Senior Fellows, Cesar Harada. Harada is an inventor — of a staggering number of kinds of things. One of them is the Open_Sailing project, a group of inventors and scientists building open-source hardware and software to explore and study the ocean.

Julia Bacha: Pay Attention To Nonviolence

In many ways, 2011 was a year when the people finally had their say. From Cairo to Wall Street, throngs of frustrated yet invigorated civilians poured into the streets and took their societies’ futures into their own hands. Though unpredictable, these movements grabbed the world’s attention, and helped remind us that great change comes most often through the courageous actions of ordinary people.

In 2012, we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to learn the necessary lessons from these movements, and to apply them to some of the world’s most pressing problems. There is no better place to start than the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, where for too long global attention has been exclusively focused on obstacles at the top, rather than breakthroughs at the bottom.

Kevin Slavin: How Algorithms Shape Our World

Watch game developer Kevin Slavin’s TEDTalk above and then explore his thoughts in this companion essay.

Back at TEDGlobal, the most difficult aspect of preparation was the editing process, chipping away at three hours of material to cut it down into 14 live minutes.

Of all the darlings that were killed, the ones I missed most were a few minutes about genetic algorithms. Like everything I presented, it’s a subject for which I have interest and passion, not training or expertise. It’s going to seem very dull. But stay with me for a few of the missing minutes.

People love sharing lists — the list is one of the formats that fare well in a Filter Bubble world. So here’s a list of five of the most interesting ideas I’ve come across since I gave my presentation at TED and published The Filter Bubble: What The Internet is Hiding from You.

Karen Tse (Premiere): Abolishing Torture

Watch human rights lawyer Karen Tse explain why it’s possible to end torture anywhere in the world in our lifetime.

While my TED talk was categorized under the “Dark Side”, what I wanted to share most deeply was the beauty and light that courageous lawyers and defenders bring into the darkest corners of police stations and prisons cells. At International Bridges to Justice, our goal is that a lawyer will meet someone as soon as possible after detention.

Salman Khan: Let’s Use Video To Reinvent Education

Watch Salman Khan discuss the reinvention of education through video, then read a follow-up post by YouTube Education’s Angela Lin below.

Growing up, my mother always told me: “You’ll learn more from a journey of 10,000 miles than from reading 10,000 books.” For years I thought it was a saying she had invented, a justification for taking me out of school for weeks at a time to satisfy her love of travel. I later realized she was quoting an old Chinese proverb that summed up the importance of gaining firsthand experience when learning about new ideas, new people and new cultures.
