the best of 2009 - challenge #3

Challenge #3 - Article. What article did you read that blew your mind?

For this category I'm going to share two TED Talks that Zach and I have watched over and over again. If you haven't discovered TED, I would definitely recommend it. There are some amazingly talented people out there with incredible ideas and creativity. Do yourself a favor and explore the themes on their site. There's something for everyone.

This first one is by Sir Ken Robinson. Please Please Please watch this. I am in love with this presentation. Zach and I have watched it at least 5 times. It will completely change your thinking about how we learn and definitely about how our children learn. Life changing. Seriously:

In this one David Gallo talks about the wonders of the ocean. He says that as of today we've explored only about 3% of the ocean. Can you believe that?? He shows videos of some truly incredible underwater creatures. Seeing things like this remind me of how incredible our Heavenly Father really is. The ultimate artist/architect/designer/everything else.... It blows my mind that He's created some of the most amazing things, and we can't even see them! That's humbling. Enjoy:
