PANGEA DAY MAY 10 2008 A TED Prize wish come true.

On May 10th throughout the world millions will gather to "meet" each other through the magic of film. From the Pangea website:

In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it's easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that - to help people see themselves in others - through the power of film.

Pangea Day is the culmination of the TED 2006 Prize dream by filmmaker Jehane Noujaim

TED | Speakers | Jehane Noujaim: "Jehane Noujaim"

BIGVIZ - an ebook of sketches from TED2008

This is the cover of a 200 page ebook created by Autodesk capturing in full color, sketches of the 50 or so speakers at TED2008 conference and an artistic visualization of the content of their speeches. The book is offered as a free downloadable pdf at if:book: the big book of TED

BIGVIZ comes very close to my concept for mural casting.Thoughts Illustrated: MuralCasting - Improving ROA (Return on attention) What's missing from the ebook is a hyperlink from each sketch to the audio/video archive of the conference giving a visual context to the recorded archive of the TED speakers. I will be talking with Tom Wujek at Autodesk to see if I can create a hyperlink layer from the BIGVIZ artwork to the audio recording of the speeches from the TED archive. Without the speech link, the images in BIGVIZ are interesting but lack the context of hearing the speaker's voices or watching segments of the selected video.
