  4. Great mind!

  5. persons like this change the world! thank you! let´s do it!

  6. Great man, great talk.

  7. Open source is nothing new. It was working for ages until patenting started. Everyone could use someones elses ideas for free because nobody thought that ideas can be sold. We are getting stuck because everyone race to patent everything and only way out seems to be reinvent freedom of ideas.

  8. The architecture field is protected by the states. Good luck.

  9. no, its the truimphal march from Aida, an opera written by Guiseppe Verdi in 1871.

  10. was the TED theme written by Danny Elfman?

  12. see this interesting project management and cooperation start up for architects, designers and engineers ARCILOOK.COM, something for us 🙂

  13. Bravo! I'm always renewed in optimism when I find people who are making a difference for everyone and fighting against exploitation.

  14. The future's bright.

    The future's open-source…

  15. Cameron cracked a joke saying that Zaha Hadid, a famous "starchitect" is funding the "War on Terror" in Iraq and Afghanistan due to the migrant workers that are hired for work on her and other starchitects' projects in Dubai who later lose their construction jobs, and with no other sources of income or family for support, join the insurgency.

  16. I had the privilege of meeting Cameron at a conference and invited him to speak at an event for the school of architecture at my university in the Spring of 2009. Some may expect him to be a something of a hippie eco-elitist, but instead, Cameron genuinely possesses a passion for people of all privileges and backgrounds.

  17. @OASISriffs Watch talks by Hans Rosling. The population will level off around 9 billion people in 2050 with proper education and humanitarian aide preformed by individuals such as Mr. Sinclair.

  18. the biggest problem is over-population, and this only worsens the problem

  19. Cameron is speaking at a public talk at the Royal Geograpahical Society (with IBG) in London on 25 May 2010 discussing improving response to Natural Disasters
    21st Century Challenges series

  20. David Cameron and Gordon Brown, if you ever get a chance, Please see this Ted video and save the UK a whole bunch of grief.
    Thank you.
    One can but hope.

  21. intersting…will chk more of this

  22. search "Architecture for Humanity"

  23. Open source, whether it's in form of text, music, architecture, design or programming is the best thing to human kind in centuries.

  24. Many people have creative ideas to solving many problems around the world, problem is they don't know how to bring forth their solutions into reality.

  25. great. awakening of awareness. we have the resources! we have the knowhow!

  26. What's brilliant is the idea of an Open-source architectural site where anyone can have access to sustainable blueprints. EVERYONE has the right to sustainable living and it should not be corporatized. Thank you Cameron.

  27. you go geek man!
