TED gives FREE speaches online

Posted by Yaser on February 28, 2008

I just learned about this cool website: www.ted.com.  TED is an organization that asks famous/interesting people to give 20-minute speeches and records them.  Now, on their website, you can watch speeches that they’ve collected over the last 24 years.  A lot of this content is probably available on YouTube, but the signal-to-noise ratio is much higher on TED because of the limited format and the high barrier to entry.

This morning, I watched a talk by J.J. Abrams, and yesterday I watched a theramin concert and a speech on aging by Aubrey de Grey (whom I’ve read about, but had never seen before).  If you have twenty minutes to spare, you should check it out.
