What are you eating?

I'm a Ted fan and I am a wannabe healthy guy, yes I slip more than I gain when it comes to a healthy lifestyle but I'm trying and feel strongly that we need to make it easier for guys like me to slip less. So... this has nothing to do with digital signage, software, business, organizational structures, nope, nada. It's about us as people and people are what makes all of those other conversations happen. So, people, check this out:

Dear Global TED Community,

I need your help with something. This won't take long... but it's a big deal.  

Today, Friday, TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution comes to America. His show premieres on ABC tonight. The show is *awesome*. If people watch it, it's going to change their lives.  

Here's what I need you to do:   

  1. If you're in America, please watch or record the show. I promise you won't regret it. Here are the program times. Here's the trailer
  2. Whether or not you're in the US, please encourage your American friends to watch.  Forward this email to at least five people.  They will thank you for it.

As a reminder, America, along with much of the rest of the world, is suffering an obesity epidemic. Millions of people are literally in danger of eating themselves to death. Jamie Oliver's food revolution tackles this head on... by helping families rediscover the thrill of delicious, healthy, freshly-cooked food. He is a magnetic spokesman for one of today's most important issues.

Please help make a TED Prize wish come true. 

Very best,

Chris Anderson, TED Curator

P.S. While you're at it, please add your name to Jamie's petition. We'd love to get to a million signatures within the next six weeks.
