Keep a look out at TED.com to see when these and other talks will be posted, so far only one talk has been posted from TEDGlobal 2009.  The talk, from UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, describes how we can use today’s interconnectedness that the internet has provided to develop our shared global ethic, which would allow us to work together to confront the challenges of poverty, security, climate change and the economy based on universally preferable behaviour.  The talk is embedded below.
