If you haven’t heard about it, you should, which is why I’m just another voice spreading ‘ideas worth spreading’.
I don’t know the history or too much of the background, but TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and it is basically a conference of amazing presentations regarding a wide variety of topics, some from famous people, some from everyday people who have a unique story to tell. The presentations are video recorded and shown on their website for free.
I’m sure they’d be an incredible event to attend, but with all the video, you’re almost there.
You now have a lot of video to watch. (Don’t worry, many presentations are short. Just start with a quick one.)
