We want to give a big shout-out to Cameron Sinclair, who has just been selected as one of three recipients for the 2006 TED prize, which honors individuals who are making a positive impact on people and the planet.

A lofty task, no doubt, and one that is clearly being accomplished in giant strides by Mr. Sinclair, the founder of Architecture for Humanity, recent recipient of the Index:2005 Award, and contributor to the fabulous Worldchanging.

And if you are wondering about the picture, it’s an image of the TED prize sculpture, which is a magnetically-levitated sphere. A great symbol to represent the awe-inspiring efforts of the TED honorees. Congratulations, Cameron!
