In this thread I challenge MMM to...

Do a Ted Talk...you'd bring Ted to a whole new badassity level!!! 

I bet you'd get millions of views, and you'd inspire whole new well-connected groups to join/spread the word. 

That's all, just planting a seed.

It's on his "eventually" list.  He's pretty busy right now though, with the kid and all (that was the reason he gave as of a month and 1/2 ago).  But he's interested in doing one at some point.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with two kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.

Totally understandable.  Glad it's on his eventual to-do list though.  Lots of the Ted community would be very interested in making changes towards MMM lifestyle IMO if they were exposed to it.  And the people who watch Ted talks (young people, teachers, community leaders etc.) are the type of people who will share and spread information to many if they like it, so it could be a great way to accellorate interest. 

Although I personally love the profanity on the site, if he does do one, please encourage him to consider keeping it out of the talk.  Lots of us mathematics and social studies teachers would love to get his information into the classroom, but as a former teacher, you know the rules we have to play by:)
