Yep, I’m a TED Talks TranslatorTelah dituliskan: 26 April 2012
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
- TED Mission : Spreading Ideas
I believe it too. My heart resonates with the passion to spread ideas. Ideas that have intentions for better and greater good. And more specifically, ideas that resonates with mine.
That’s why I like TED Talks very much. TED Talks provides videos of people sharing their ideas, passionately. They talk about ingenious, fascinating, and inspiring ideas they have. Some of them are simple, less than six minutes sharing, some longer up to twenty minutes or more. Some of the ideas is based on practical examples in the fields, some just mind blowing theories. The scope of the talks is very broad, including socio-psychology, terrorism, creativity and education problems, particle physics, new technology inventions, economics and poverty solution, environmental issues, and all other.
After tens of video downloads, I stumbled into a thought. I become moved to contribute. How can I contribute something to spread ideas.
So, in short : I become a TED Translator. I’ve contributed
three four Indonesian translations of the talks. You can see two of them below, one is being reviewed. I’ve wrote about TED-ding in my recent post. Just in case you haven’t heard or watch one of TED Talks, I suggest you to go to the website yourself.
Deb Roy: The Birth of a Word
Thandie Newton: Embracing otherness, embracing myself
Sheena Iyengar: How to make choosing easier
Susan Cain: The power of introverts
Once an idea has taken hold of the brain, it’s almost impossible to eradicate.
An idea that is fully formed, fully understood
By the way this’ me.
