Especially Good TED Talks

The History of TED Talks


Of the following TED Talks, the first "ten" are among my personal favorites.

Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke of insight | Video on 

Doris Kearns Goodwin on learning from past presidents | Video on

Kevin Slavin: "How Algorithms Shape Our World."

Slavin's talk is a great - though oddly angled - companion piece to 2010 Oscar winning Best Documentary, "Inside Job," which is freely available at

Mark Bittman on what's wrong with what we eat | Video on

Dan Gilbert asks, Why are we happy? | Video on

Robert Wright on optimism | Video on
