Haaaaaave you met TED?

(ten points to the person who gets the reference of my title. Chris, you don't count)

Have you guys heard of TED? It is the most amazing conference of people who are considered movers and shakers in their respective industry circles. It does have a bit of an elitist angle to it--you have to apply to attend, and membership is something like $6,000 a year or something crazy like that. But the conference attracts brilliant speakers and the elitist nature of the conference makes it a hot ticket.

Thankfully, we esteemed patrons of the world wide web can access a lot of their wonderful lectures for the total price of $0. Yup. Online access is free! I've already watched several really fascinating lectures and highly recommend checking out Majora Carter, Elizabeth Gilbert, A.J. Jacobs, and Billy Graham.

  1. Yes, this is good. I must watch all of these, especially the Billy Graham one sounds interesting. AJ Jacobs, what did he talk about? That should be good too!
