Dan Ariely speaks at EG about his rather mind boggling book Predictably Irrational siting examples on how we humans make some rather odd decisions based on what we see and already know. I’d highly recommend buying this book or following his work! (ps, he also spoke at TED last week)

Mike Rowe of TV show Dirty Jobs speaks at last years EG conference about the 1 time he had to say “timeout” during a shoot and what he has learned from his show. A very intresting perspective and inspirational story that makes you rethink things a bit.
“Bill Gates hopes to solve some of the world’s biggest problems using a new kind of philanthropy. In a passionate and, yes, funny 18 minutes, he asks us to consider two big questions and how we might answer them.”
A MUST watch from best selling author Elizabeth Gilbert of “Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia.”
“Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.”

I’m off for the week to TED2009 for this years theme “The Great Unveiling”, but this round I’ll be in the satilite space in the new Palm Springs location. I won’t be blogging too much, but you can follow me on twitter, or if your there, let me know and we’ll meet up. Check out the full TED schedule here or my previous TED adventures.
