Look at the beauty you can create when you join up the online world

I am a big fan of TED because of some of the truly inspirational speakers you can find there. Indeed once you have found it, you will spend many hours watching people who you may never have heard about before speaking on subjects you have never had an interest in before.

So here is one such inspirational talk that made me stop dead on a Sunday afternoon.

Eric Whitacre is a composer. Have a look at his website and see the sort of thing he does however it was his talk on TED that caught my attention.

Simply put, over 2000 people from all around the world have recorded their own part of Erics composition and this has then been edited together to create a Virtual Choir. The result really is amazing and shows that sometimes, a connected and joined up world can create something truly beautiful.

Here is the finished result but please, view the TED talk first as it just makes the whole experience more special
