In the 1500+ cream-of-the-crop TED and TEDx videos that make it to TED.com, Derek Sivers’s 3-minute breakdown of How to Start a Movement is the 32nd most viewed. His story is simple and hilarious: A shirtless man’s ridiculous (and very public) dance solo turns into an all-out, jam-packed dance party in a matter of seconds.

As a professional mediator, I am always encouraged by the use of mediation to resolve international conflicts.
