TED Conference video online
« on: February 20, 2008, 11:32:46 PM »
I recently started using the video feature of my video iPod and was pleased to discover that the TED conference has posted nearly 200 of its talks online for download.  The quality is wildly variable, but I've enjoyed most of what I've heard/seen so far.  Just finished listening to Barry Schwartz's talk about the "paradox of choice," which I thought was spot on.  Up next:  Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Pollan.  The link is here:

I JUST discovered the TED conferences thanks to a documentary on the 2006 panel that's available on Netflix's Instant Viewing. I'd love to attend one.

thanks for the link!

I wish I could attend a TED conference, too.  I first heard Paul Simon speak about it on Charlie Rose, and then one of the conference's founders was on the other night and mentioned the online videos.  Unfortunately, I think that those conferences are by invitation only.  I also think that one point they were charging several thousand dollars just to attend.
