TED announced its list of fellows for 2009 on its website. Not all the 103 fellow are Indians (neither did I wish for anything of that sorts) but the list is refreshing. It features 103 diverse people who have been doing something really different.
The list also reiterates a simple tenet - "More often than not, it is not the lack of time or resources that prevents us from doing something, it is the lack of motivation". And that is precisely why we hear of life changing experiences which change the way we prioritize.
That is all for now, but make sure you check out the list and read up on each person on their net.
