Cousin On TED

TED - Congrats to my cousin for being asked to present!

My Cousin Rufus at TED

I'm a huge fan of the TED conferences. I can't talk more about them.For those of you that don't know about how it works:"TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer -- TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize."Take a look at TED.com and search through the videos.My cousin (Rufus Griscom) was asked to speak. I think he and his wife Alisa did an excellent job.http://www.ted.com/talks/rufus_griscom_alisa_volkman_let_s_talk_parenting_taboos.htmlFor those of you who are interested, this is probably the most inspirational thing I have ever seen.http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/eng/bill_stone_explores_the_earth_and_space.html
