TED Talks!

I have a bit of an obsession with TED Talks. I rarely watch television shows or movies, but I watch TED Talks almost every day. In their own words, TED is:

a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Here are five of my favorites.

Do you watch TED Talks? What ones do you like most? Do you have any recommendations for me? Comment or email me at [my email]. I’m always looking for new talks on any topic to watch.
