Technology Entertainment Design, or TED, is an organization that brings together interesting people from all over the world, and allows them to present ideas, experiences and performances with those who can afford to attend. In recent years, they have been posting the videos of these presentations online for all to see. Just this week, two different presentations were made at this year's event that both talk about the possibilities of an abundance based future, and the inevitable collapse of our current social and economic structures. One video appeals to optimism, to historical and technological trends, the growing efficiency of production and resource extraction and many positive developments made in recent months and years. The other video depicts a dark future, filled with chaos, depression, collapse and death. It recognizes that the current trajectory of humanity is headed towards global catastrophe, and will likely bring with it great upheaval and change, and that many people will suffer while going through it. While many people see these two presentations as diametrically opposed, many in the Zeitgeist Movement would recognize the common truth of both messages. If humanity is going to survive for any significant length of time, we will have to both change our current methods of organizing society, and develop the technologies necessary to produce access abundance. The TED presentation archives are filled with amazing and compelling videos, and I encourage you to search through their catalog to find something of interest to you, and begin to learn more about the world in which we live, and how we can all help make it better for all people.

The Zeitgeist Broadcasting Network streams original programming, relevant media and live events relating to the Zeitgeist Movement and a Resource Based Economy. Yesterday, ZBN live streamed the TEDx Ojai event in California, an event that featured both a live lecture given by Peter Joseph and a video presentation given by Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project. There was also a live musical performance and a presentation on innovative building technologies. These presentations will be available for download some time in the future, but stay tuned to ZBN for ongoing shows and videos, and future events!
