Awesome Video Saturday XII

This first video is from the same forum as last Saturday's AweVidSat. It is a talk by Will Wright, the man who created The Sims and Sim City. He has a very new and interesting concept that should be worth exploring once it becomes available.

This second video is of a talk by a man named Bjorn Lomborg. He is an economist who has gained notoreity for his ideas on how governments and other groups should prioritize dealing with the world's problems. His concern is allocating resources to where the need is greatest AND the potential for success is significant. Not surprisingly, Global Warming doesn't make the top cut. This talk is a few years old, but the debate remains pertinent.
