TED Talks

August 18th, 2006 by Adam

It is one of my career goals to someday attend the TED (Technology Entertainment Design) Conference. It is a collection of some of the worlds smartest and most interesting people, gathering to share ideas and change the world.

While you and I wait for our invitation, I’m happy to report that TED has posted a couple dozen videos from this year’s event. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Hans Rosling puts world economic and health statistics into amazing animated graphics.
  • Sir Ken Robinson talks about creativity in education.
  • Joshua Prince-Ramus talks about hyper-rational design and the Seattle Library.

Watch them at least once for the subject matter and once to study the presentation styles. Most of them are A+ in both regards. You can see all the videos or subscribe to a video podcast at http://ted.com/tedtalks/
