zurich.minds - Switzerland at its most brilliant!

I just discovered this thinktank of brilliant minds, right here in Swiss!

http://www.zurichminds.com/videos/intro.html

See what you think. It's invitation-only, so it reminds me of MENSA. Although, looking at the video it is more inspired by TED.

Mr. Black Swan, Nassim Talib, says he thinks it's great, which is a minus point for me. The participants all look jolly pleased with themselves, but I'm probably just jealous.

Maybe we have some members of this elite right here on englishforum... We're smart enough .

I couldn't see a link elsewhere on the site which lists these videos.

As General Cheeseburger might have said:

Invite them all, bring them together in a big room, sit them down in front of a power point presentation, then...

BOMB THE BASTARDS!
