    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.

    Johann Hari:
    Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong
    Johann Hari: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | TED Talk | TED.com

    A necessary exercise on empathy and compassion for people normally deemed subhumans by society, with the scientific basis behind it. Also good for self-understanding if you're basically me and have an addictive personality.
