"TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader." That's the introduction for this remarkable website.
The presentations for a small, select audience are made available for all here. You can see/hear the world's best speak about almost any important issue. Have a look : http://www.ted.com/index.php

ted.com: William McDonough: The wisdom of designing Cradle to Cradle


ted.com wrote:
Architect and designer William McDonough asks what our buildings and products would look like if designers took into account "All children, all species, for all time." A tireless proponent of absolute sustainability (with a deadpan sense of humor), he explains his philosophy of "cradle to cradle" design, which bridge the needs of ecology and economics. He also shares some of his most inspiring work, including the world's largest green roof (at the Ford plant in Dearborn, Michigan), and the entire sustainable cities he's designing in China.


McDonough begins by asking what kind of a society creates toys that are dangerous for children to use.

The coolest thing was the green roof on the Ford plant in Michigan. I WANT a green roof!!

This talk was filmed in 2005. I've googled to see how the new Chinese cities are coming along but have not been successful. What do you bet that someone will decide that it's not cost effective. la la la

Or maybe not??

No time to lose....
