Great quotes and notes from the TEDx in Brussels

This is my overflow from the last blog post on the TEDx 2011 in BrusselsI had so many great quotes, that I simply had to share them.

The clock rate of organisations are increasing

The driving force for aggregation is diversity

What makes us intelligent is the models we think with

The only way you can be more effective is by aggregation

Good models make useful ideas simple

In 2061 aggregate individuals will be the dominant species of the planet

Lets make them of love
The singularity is here

A day deep into the future

This morning I had plans to do regular work, but as I checked twitter I saw TEDx trending on top. I had to check it out - it was live streaming and I was hooked for the rest of the day. This was one of the most mind-blowing days I´ve had at work for a long time.

Very strange to experience the real power of having access to some of the greatest thinkers of today - right at my own desk in a regular office in Bergen. Although I like to watch TED videos regularly, It is different with an event that is broadcast real-time with a twitter stream as the collective stream of consciousness for all the people watching, listening, thinking and tweeting at the same time.

The theme of the TEDx event was - What does the world look like in 2061?
In my own mind I extracted the following mega trends inspired by the talks:
