TED 2012 is happening right now and this woman is on my radar. A few months ago I came across a book called Quiet: The Power of Introverts by Susan Cain. I may look like an extrovert, but I value solitude and I value the so-called ‘quiet ones’. Why? Sometimes we need quiet, and those who are quiet, to hear new ideas. Hopefully Susan Cain’s talk will upload shortly.

Susan Cain, the author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, is an introvert. So as she gets up to present from the TED2012 stage, bag in hand, it is not a comfortable experience. But it’s an important one, and that’s the point.
