A few days TEDBlog posted an earlier video of Bob Thurman's talk (taken on 12/06) about how an all connected world, delivered by technology means that we can know anything at anytime. From TEDBlog:
"And this mass enlightenment, says Thurman, is our first step toward becoming Buddha. When we can know everything, we can see how everything is interconnected -- and we can begin to feel compassion for every living being."
Here's the video. Hope you like it as much as I did.
