A different way to think about creative genius: Elisabeth Gilbert surprises us with a breakthrough thinking on innovation. She muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person « being » a genius, all of us « have » a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.

NB: TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
