I have stumbled on the site 10 years ago and that first day I was hooked on it for 3 hours. I was thrilled by the fantastic tales of discovery and excited about the possible future discovery. Being a researcher Ted represents a golden trove of information and its visual, which doubles the pleasure of listening.
The people are from all walks of life and represent business, artist, inventors and just about anyone who has found a creative outlet for their talents. I see so many possibility for young people in this talks. I have personally contacted few of the people who have given talks and got a response. Sometime I just like to let them know how much I enjoyed listening to them.
This is life and its about connecting with one another in any creative endeavor and Ted encourages this opportunity by inviting people to talk and present their unique talent to the world.
I will present videos on this blog for some of those that have impressed me the most in areas that I care about, almost everything, but I had to choose those that inspire and have done much to improve lives, especially for those who are usually left behind in poverty and precarious situations, like women with small children lacking education to better themselves.
