The TED phenomenon is changing the world and the way we meet. I’m not, of course, alluding to the new Seth MacFarlance comedy
or the seemingly related Teddy Ruxpin (seen in the above photo bringing joy to an audience of one), rather the fabulous idea fest TED and it’s regional offshoots, TEDx (dig the One+ feature of TEDx planners
and our profile of Lakshmi Pratury
, TED India host and founder of an idea fest for the subcontinent).
The New Yorker, that bastion of high-ish-brow storytelling (and bland cartoon humor), has called out “Five Key TED Talks.” I agree the talks cited are all great, but I can think of other game changers—Bill Gates releasing mosquitos into the crowd during his malaria talk immediately comes to mind.
What are the most important or eye-opening TED videos you’ve seen?
