Mantautas shares his views on happiness and unhappiness brought by connected world and what can we do about that.
"When talking about happiness, it is hard to define what you are talking about. It's not a matter of 6 minutes TED talk. Not even 18, even though some brilliant speakers of TED tried to. It's a matter of lifelong talk. And by "talk" I mean talk with human beings. Not dependent on technology we use. People we meet, people around us. Interacting with them, because that is what in the end makes one happy or not. Interacting with others we play games and we are being played with as well. Did you notice that some rules for those games have changed?"
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
