Larry Brilliant at TED

Larry Brilliant, one the leaders of the successful World Health Organization smallpox eradication program, gave an inpiring talk at this year's TED gathering, explaining how we can tap into our communications technology to help eradicate major diseases, through early detection and early response. He wants to make it "part of our culture" that there is a globally connected "community of people watching out for the worst nightmares of humanity and that it is accessible for everybody." (His talk is the third, beginning an hour into the prgramme).
