This is a short video of a presentation given by Iain Thomas (one of the men behind the “I Wrote This For You” project), at TEDx in Johannesburg in November 2009. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to have a TED-like experience. For those that aren’t already aware, TED is a non-profit organization that puts together yearly conferences to gather great minds from the fields of Technology, Entertainment, and Design… for the sake of presenting what they call “ideas worth spreading.”

Anyway, this guy Iain Thomas gives a short talk on “microstories,” and their relation to social media and technology. It’s really quite interesting, as is the blog he runs. For an emotional wreck like myself, I find these tiny stories to be rather heartbreakingly poignant. I cried twice during this youtube video.
