Peter Diamandis on TED: Abundance is Our Future

Peter Diamandis & Socrates at SU

Onstage at TED, Peter Diamandis makes a case for optimism — that we’ll invent, innovate and create ways to solve the challenges that loom over us:

“I’m not saying we don’t have our set of problems; we surely do. But ultimately, we knock them down.”

Peter Diamandis is a self-admitted nine-year-old child-space-enthusiast and a visionary who dreams big and has the resume to prove that the best way to predict the future is to create it yourself. Just some of his resume highlights include: the Founder and Chairman of the X PRIZE Foundation; co-Founder and Managing Director of Space Adventures; the CEO and co-founder of Zero Gravity Corporation; and, most recently, the Rocket Racing League; the International Space University and the Singularity University.
