    Good idea,There are several dealing with science,and the like that I do not wish to ''Loose'' out in the ''Suburbs'' of my main tree.I think I will relocate those,then call my main tree ''Play''/explore. Thank you for the idea.

    Place the Pearltrees you want keep as they are, in a safe corner; and create a new Pearltree called PLAY! Then go for it with all your childlike enthusiasm!

    Paul - good to hear from you! I couldn't agree more! I have already made an archive of this TED pearltree, and have thought about the different ways that this Pearltree could be organized. I love your metaphor of a sandbox, and to play! Do you think it would work best if I simply broke down the organization of the PearlTree, or would simply inviting members to reorganize be enough? I think having the TED team members reorganize all the pearltrees, not just Life, would also be a good thing, what to you think?

    Hi Docein - it's been a while since I said hello. Looks like the Team Life is taking tentative steps towards a selection of its own. They're being very respectful of your marvellous curation of TED talks. That's good. You know, sometimes I think that we need an archive in Pearltrees for the ones we love and want to preserve. Then in real time, let's re-arrange and re-build and re-discover with all the playful disposition of a kid with building blocks. PLAY! A sandbox or a playpen! That's what I'm going to set up in my own Pearltree to overcome the equilibrium itsself creates: a Showcase and a Sandbox.

    Hello everyone, Thank you for contributing to this pearltree, however, lets please keep the pearls as TEDtalks. Please do not link other pearltrees, or non TED related pearls. Thank you.
