I know its been a long time yet again. And I apologize for having failed to keep up my promise of being more regular. With all this work load its been hard to write. So you will be seeing a post from me whenever I have the energy and the thought process to write.
Today, I want to talk about Ted Talks. Ted: Ideas worth spreading, is a global set of conferences owned by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation. It was started in 1984.
The answer to why I'm writing a post about it is simply because these are ideas worth spreading. These ideas may or may not be something that you're interested in. But watching a 10-20 min talk might open your mind to something so new, refreshing, enlightening or just funny. The speakers are veterans in domain that they choose to speak about. So you know that there's going to be no B^ll$#!T happening. They are available online freely. Ted app allows you to watch talks on your tablet with ease. I am hooked to the TED app. Here are some videos that I love and recommend.
Larry Page: Where's Google going next?
Del Harvey: The strangeness of scale at Twitter
Sandra Aamodt: Why dieting doesn't usually work
Sally Kohn: Let's try emotional correctness
Cameron Russell: Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model.
Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are
Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?
Here are some that you could start with. Some are really old, yet eye opening.
Hope you like them.
Thanks for reading,
