Our fearless leader gave a TED talk. So proud of her and honored to be a part of the team.

You can get more (there were some great one-liners, many of them tweeted) via https://twitter.com/#!/search/pahlka (But don't confuse her TEDxSF video, which some people have tweeted, with her actual TED talk today, which isn't up online yet. The TEDx talk was good too, but this one knocked it out of the park.)

Here are a few of my own favorite lines (may not be exact quotes):

"Government is like a vast ocean. Politics is the six-inch layer on top."

"We think politics is sexy. But if we're going to fix government, we have to make bureaucracy sexy."

On OccupyTheSEC's 325 page response to the SEC's request for comment on financial reform regulations:

"That's not being politically active. That's being bureaucratically active."

On the need to do something, not just complain:

"If we're going to fix government, we're going to have to fix citizenship."

"When it comes to dealing with the big problems we face, are we just going to be a crowd of voices, or are we going to be a crowd of hands?"
