I’m a big fan of TED Talks. They are a sharing of ideas that can fundamentally challenge or even change some of your most basic thoughts, or broaden your vision for new possibilities.
Here, Joe Smith, a lawyer from Oregon, gives a talk about not wasting paper towels. I know I’m guilty of grabbing these from the dispenser like they could be used for currency. But Smith shows how you can dry your hands without waste…and by his numbers, we collectively do a lot of it.
“Why twelve? Twelve apostles. Twelve tribes. Twelve zodiak signs. Twelve months. And the one I like the best, it’s the biggest number with one syllable.”
Ha! Great presentation.
This talk comes from a TEDx conference; which describes itself as follows:
“In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.”
