Categories from the mind of the HoarseMan… What do they really mean?

OK, so HoarseMan discovered that they were called “Topics” instead of Categories… No big deal. He’s pretty sure you’ll get the idea.

  • HoarseMan Meaning: Business, jobs, just making a living in general – potential snark alert.
  • RealMeaning: “You’re kidding me, right?”

  • Real Meaning: It’s true, sometimes the HoarseMan tells lies.

One of the most amazing organizations on the planet is TED. Where else can you gather the brightest people on the planet? — With a time limit.

Sometimes, looking at these I believe that 18 minutes (NOT the amount of stuff missing from the Nixon tapes*) will someday save the world.

Me, I can’t think without doodling on paper or iPad. (Of course, there are those who would say I don’t think anyway.)

*[ed note: of course this talk is only six minutes, as are most of the talks on TED.com, but the time limit for the TED conference speakers is 18 minutes. I wonder if they were thinking of the “missing minutes” when they came up with that time limit…]
