Jason Silva is a filmmaker, journalist, futurist and philosopher. The Atlantic have called his videos “movie trailers for ideas”. He has called them “shots of philosophical espresso”. Silva is a presenter at TEDGlobal 2012 which kicked off today in Edinburgh. The inspiration for TEDGlobal 2012 is “Radical Openness”.
