TED Talks are a wonderful way to absorb information. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
Here are some of the talks that have impacted me and some articles that add some colour to the world of TED.
