Inspiring TED Talks

TED, which began as a conference about Technology, Entertainment & Design in 1984 now covers the gamut of human knowledge and inspiration. And it does just what its slogan promises…it delivers Ideas Worth Spreading.

I, like many others, fell in love with TED talks the moment they went public on YouTube and on the web in 2006. Today the initiative continues to churn out inspiring content and offer a platform and access to the world’s greatest thinkers and influencers. Here are a few personal favourites from the world of TED:
