TED is a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful resource. TED's tagline is "ideas worth spreading." the topics are interesting, the presenters are passionate, the questions raised are thought-provoking. i am educated, entertained, delighted, and inspired by them.
my dad sent me a link to a beautiful video on pollination. it was on youtube, but he let me know that it came from a TED talk, so looked it up and watched the whole presentation. now i have found other breathtaking videos by the same filmmaker at movingart.
i want to know what other smart, curious, creative, forward-thinking, driven people are working on. TED allows me to attend mini conference sessions from the comfort of my home. i learn about the people behind the ideas - what ignites and propels them. then i search out their work and learn more and more and more. and i pass the ideas along, because they are worth spreading.
some of my favorites (so far):
i am happyer at home because i have TED right here with me.
