My friend Massimo told me about this. It’s basically a site where intelligent people get to air their views in around 18 minutes.
Their website says – TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
It’s really interesting. I’m going through it at the moment. I watched Tony Robbins one Why We Do What We Do – it was fantastic. Very informative. There’s also one by Ken Robinson where he talks about How School Kills Creativity. I personally agree with most of what he has to say.
Anyway, It’s certainly worth a closer look.
