TED talks

I have been watching TED talks online for a few months now but I just realized that there are TONS of them on Netflix so recently I've been watching them like crazy! For those of you who don't know, TED is a non-profit organization devoted to sharing ideas that are, well, worth sharing. They invite people to come and give a recorded lecture which are posted online (and on Netflix) for anyone to watch! The site can be a bit overwhelming at first, so to get you started, here are a few of my favorite TED talks. Let me know what you think. Jb

Susan Cain with The Power of Introverts

Andrew Bird's One Man Orchestra

Kevin Allocca on Why Videos Go Viral

Dan Gilbert asks, Why Are We Happy?

William Li: Can We Eat to Starve Cancer?

Nathan Myhrvold and his Mosquito Zapping Laser

Imogen Heap plays "Wait It Out"
