TED is a video library of great thinkers and doers giving a 10-15 minute talk of their lifetime about their passion.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: TECHNOLOGY, ENTERTAINMENT, and DESIGN.
TED's mission statement is: "We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we're building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world's most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
Here are three of my favorite TED Talks:
Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter...
Tony Porter: A call to men
So you see the topics range far. Some are uniquely funny. Other's inspiring. All though provoking.
I would love to know what your favorite TED Talks are!
