Visionary Acts through Passion and Innovation

Amit Sood at TED 2011 talks about the evolution and features of The Google Art Project, a work of generosity and vision that provides unprecedented and global access to great museums and works of art from around the world.

I have already spent hours poking about the site.
The collections are, of course, staggering.
The experience of exploration is both miraculous and magical.

Through projects like this one and OLPC, a child in sub-Saharan Africa can be moved to tears by the brush stokes of Van Gogh, then look up to his own starry, starry night and begin to change the world.
