TED is the BEST

Some of the best videos I have seen online, and the most memorable, are from the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) annual conferences. My favorite used to be Sherwin Nuland's story.

Recently, a web site I check frequently, Open Culture
pointed out that TED had posted its Top 10 TEDTalks videos.

Here I found another just as compelling, by Jill Bolte Taylor (Click on her name to go to it, not the image below). Warning, it's 18 minutes long, so not when you are in an ADD mood...


Maybe I was attracted to these 2 videos due to my old training in psychology, but to me the mind and its study have always been a fascinating topic. Both videos are inspiring, and also demonstrate the impossible odds that we can ovecome, how others can save us, and how tragedy can be turned to our advantage. But then, what other choices do we have?!

I just watched this several weeks ago and now I'm a TED fanatic. Such great stuff we have at our fingertips these days.

I subscribed to (or friended?) the TED page in Facebook a while ago, so see all the new videos they post, they show up in my updates. Unfortunately, I only have the time to watch a few a month.
But they are, and the people that present them, pretty incredible! One of the best things on line.
