    Default One of your many favorite TED talks! Share!

    I hope and almost expect many of you to be watching some of the awesome TED talks out there. When they first released, only a handful of people were actively watching but after a while it came to TV and were made mainstream. I mean the streaming version, not the sitting-in-audience version. I still have to do the latter one day!

    So this thread is about sharing those talks that made you skip a beat and reach for the newly invested idea to blow it out of proportions and wonder if that last thought of his in the talk might spell out how the computers came together and actually was the original tiny detail of an enormous evolving idea that still hasn't reached a climax!?
    This is one of mine:

    I would have made use of TEDs' original website but I wasn't able to.
    Here's the link for the same video but better quality

    EDIT: I did make a search and I found Nothing. At least I couldn't find a thread specifically made with TED in mind.

    Dang, I have mine all bookmarked on my other computer.

    This is the first one that came to mind for me, though:

    I felt vindicated when I watched it because I had been saying the same stuff for years.

It's often the knowledge that others feel what they might feel that seems to turn people on and choose to do the action. Power is ugly.

    If I'm incomprehensible, it's because I drop words in the sentence and I'll try to elaborate if that is the case. I'm virtually blind for it.

    Patricia Kuhl: The linguistic genius of babies
    At TEDxRainier, Patricia Kuhl shares astonishing findings about how babies learn one language over another -- by listening to the humans around them and "taking statistics" on the sounds they need to know.
