If you have yet to check out any of the TED Talks we have featured, start with this one!
You may know Mike Rowe from many things – Dirty Jobs, the show on the Discovery Channel, Ford commercials, and as the voice of many things, including many of the last Shark Week shows.
What you may not already know is the respect and reverence with which he treats all those he comes in contact with because of his show, and the adoration he has for each job he has done.
If you are cursing your cubicle walls (and swearing that they are closing in on you) than take a look at this and you will appreciate where you are – all while listening to an amazing adventure by Mike. Enjoy!
Clay Shirky is a firm believer in changing how society works by using new technologies to enable global cooperation. In other words, he believes social media can and will change the world.
This TED talk is from June 2009, but it is perhaps more relevant today than when it was originally posted.
