Technology and Buddism

I’ve been following the very good TEDBlog’s coverage of TEDGlobal 2007 this week. Well worth reading. Powerful information.

A few days TEDBlog posted an earlier video of Bob Thurman’s talk (taken on 12/06) about how an all connected world, delivered by technology means that we can know anything at anytime. From TEDBlog:

“And this mass enlightenment, says Thurman, is our first step toward
becoming Buddha. When we can know everything, we can see how everything
is interconnected – and we can begin to feel compassion for every
living being.”

How powerful is that.

Here’s the video. Hope you like it as much as I did.
