Bono Makes a Wish

Here's a little something to start off our day from Yahoo!:

U2 frontman and global activist Bono targeted worldwide poverty in his wishes as he was a recipient of the inaugural TED Prize from the Technology, Entertainment, Design conference.

The three winners were given four months to come up with their wishes, with TED agreeing to spend $100,000 on each winner to help make them come true.

Bono wished Thursday night for the creation of ONE, a social movement he hopes will have more than 1 million Americans fighting worldwide poverty. He also wished to tell people of this movement 1 billion times and wants TED to help connect every hospital, health clinic and school in Ethiopia to the Internet.
What the article doesn't say is that "TED" is actually a magic talking fish.
