This is an excellent way to see much of the formal highlights of the TED 2012 program. Also an excellent way to see interesting elements of Chime.IN's design in action. Nice curation job +Bill Gross & friends!
 
Here's my summary of everything I heard and saw and learned all week long at TED 2012 in Long Beach at the link below. Would love your feedback and comments.

Contributed by Sherry Turkle following her TED talk last month. My sense is that a third of people already "feel" or "know" the position (early part of adoption curve of next phase). It'll be interesting to see how it diffuses into the cultural stack over time.
We use technology to keep one another at distances we can control: not too close, not too far, just right: the Goldilocks effect.

Wow, what a lucky strike! It was indeed storm last eve.
Photographer Phil McGrew took the striking picture through the rain-soaked window of his apartment, in San Francisco. An incredible eight bolts hit the Bay Bridge during the thunderstorm.

Likely to be the top talk from this year's TED. Hard to beat a trial room lawyer with an utterly compelling case and deep commitment on a TED stage.

This is an angle on sleep I hadn't heard. Waking up after one block of sleep and being up for an hour or two and then getting a second block may have been the norm even.
Sleeping in one eight-hour chunk is a very recent phenomenon, and lying awake at night could be good for you, according to scientists and historians.
