A great organization!

A great organization!

TED is wonderful. It's a non-profit organization that challenges professionals of all fields to "give the speech of their lifetime" They have from 15 min to one hour to do so. The concept: Ideas Worth Spreading.

They also have conferences that are well worth attending. An annual one is held in California, they also have a global one, which I believe is hosted by different countries each year.

Some Great TED talks:

On the use of Suspended Animation in trauma:


On Mass Extinctions:

I hadn't seen that one yet but it's fantastic, I wonder why more people don't do what they love.

As a related link did you see the Ze Frank Nerdcore comedy?

The link above is from the speakers personal site as I think the sound quality is better, this is the actual TED talk.
