Honor the Inner Oddball

Here is something I'd like to share. It is a 8 minute talk that I gave at the TEDx Leadership Pittsburgh Conference, held on November 14th and 15th of 2009, on the topic of "children and the future".
It sure was difficult to say as much as I wanted to in 8 minutes, but this is what came of this attempt, in the most honest, humble and conscious way that I could summon. Hope you enjoy.



  1. Wow..... Encantador...

  2. Hi Alberto,
    This is Meg Graham here! I found your link through Thomas Davenport's facebook page! I happened upon your TED talk and I just wanted to let you know that I throughly agree and enjoyed your subject matter.
    I have a blog as well, Sophie Weber is my pen name, I just started called la terre vert. I write mostly about urban farming and sustainability and lots of other stuff too.

    hope all is well with you and the fam,
    peace and love,

  3. Aunque entiendo poco el inglés, logré captar mucho de lo que explicas Chiti.. eres increíble..
    un abrazo grande

    1. Linda mi lole,
      No te imaginas lo mucho que ha sido tu influencia en mi, de nino,
      lo que ha creado mi poder vital. Y pensar que recien ahora vengo a responderte...
      Ya espero verte, ojala este Diciembre.
      Muchos Besos

  4. Alberto,
    Every Spring semester I teach an art class required for early education majors. I love to show your TED video to my students! I think I started showing it near this time back in 2010 and I show it every time I teach this class. I find it incredibly inspirational both professionally (as an art educator) as well as personally in my own art work. Please keep blogging and don't ever take this lecture off. Please add any additional lectures you present, I'd be very interested to hear them too.

    1. Dear Danielle,
      Your encouraging words
      are so welcomed at this time!
      To think that I've considered removing it, being so critical
      or self conscious,
      or wondered wether it is helpful or not...
      Your taking the time to say this to me inspires
      to do more and better!
      Thank you!
