TED2009 minutes from Ethan Zuckerman: TED University

Ethan Zuckerman is back at TED2009, after accepting an award in Denver yesterday. In his latest entry, he liveblogs from this morning’s TED University. Here’s a little excerpt:


“Dr. Sophal Ear studies how states can rebuild after war. His interest in the subject is a deeply personal one. He shows us a picture of his family in 1977 in Vietnam. As he’s Cambodian, there’s a story behind the picture. His parents, like so many others, were persecuted under Pol Pot, and made to work in rice fields.”


TED University is packed with fascinating stories, and Ethan has managed to give accurate summary to each one. Not an easy task.
