Messages Getting Around

Postman
Copenhagen postman, doin' his thang. Rain or shine. Snow or sleet. The packages, letters and messages get out.

Just spent a brilliant day at the Copenhagen version of the TED.com talks - TEDx Copenhagen. What a wonderful experience. Great speakers and an information overload - in the positive sense. I was privileged to be invited to speak and I tackled the subject of The Culture of Fear relating to fear campaigns and helmet promotion.

Thanks to TED x Copenhagen for an enriching, fruitful day.

Good to hear some commonsense being talked for once. The frustration of listening to and being at the mercy of corporate/government ill-informed self-serving bullshit gets too much sometimes!

love Tedx - just started here in Amsterdam as well. Thanks for the fear and cycling talk, the safest nation to cycle in Holland (least fatalities per km *) has helmet usage at 1%. safety is a multi-faceted item, mandatory helmets is just putting the fear that cycling is a dangerous activity while clearly it is not when you take a multi-dimensional approach to cycling safety.
