Some of the greatest speakers in the world keynote at TED, an uber-expensive invite-only conference in Monterey, California.
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, but the conference is about any and all important ideas and trends. Attendance is limited to 1000 people and costs $4000, but now us plebes can benefit from the great speakers.
Check out the speakers here. Apparently more will be released soon. Note: I found that the best bet was to download the videos, then watch them. Otherwise I was getting a lot of re-buffering nonsense that really interrupted the videos.
Here’s the ones that I’ve watched and really enjoyed:
- Rick Warren (pastor)
- Joshua Prince-Ramus (architect)
- Ken Robinson (author, expert on innovation/creativity)
- Al Gore (umm … you’ve heard of this guy)
I’m sure a lot of the others are good too (besides Tony Robbins, who I thought was horrible). I just haven’t seen them yet.[tags] TED, videos, motivation, inspiration, john koetsier [/tags]
