TED Talks - Recommended

Feeling a little bored and looking for something a bit more enlightened than your standard YouTube video? Head over to the TED website: www.ted.com.

TED is self described as:

TED LogoTED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes). This site makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free.

There are some phenomenal talks contained in the archives. Some are highly thought provoking, some are funny, some are fascinating, some are all of the above. Here's a few I've enjoyed so far:

After your Abrams

After your Abrams recommendation, I added myself to their mailing list and every week or few weeks (can't remember which), I get a list of the recent talks. It's a great little listen. Love it!

J.J. Abrams

Definitely, J.J. Abrams' talk is great! It's at: http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/205.

I haven't been drawn into Lost, and his movie Cloverfield isn't my thing, but I loved hearing his thoughts on the creative process.

Here's hoping he does an awesome job on Star Trek!
