“This is not just about a park!
This is about freedom
This is about the abuse of state power
This is about media being censored
This is about minorities not being protected
This is about all that we had for years as citizens
This is about all the lies from the government “in the name of democracy”
This is about the wish to end the dictatorship of Tayyip
This is about being heard
This is about being alive!”

TED Talk of the Day: A young entrepreneur named Colin Robertson attempts to deliver a three-minute TED talk about crowdsourcing solar energy solutions when his presentation is suddenly halted by every TED speaker’s worst nightmare: The infamous “spinning beach ball of death.”
Considering Robertson is really Eugene Cordero, an ImprovEverywhere agent who isn’t so much a young entrepreneur as a merry prankster, the “nightmare” doesn’t quite end there.
