I thought I should get into watching TED talks, but I have no idea where to start. I'm probably most interested in science/psychology type stuff, but anything will do provided it's interesting.
Here are some good ones:
- Mathemagic - Arthur Benjamin
- Stats that reshape your world view - Hans Rosling
- New insights on poverty - Hans Rosling
- Asia's rise - How and when - Hans Rosling
- The good news of the decade? - Hans Rosling (seriously, guy's amazing)
- What doctors don't know about the drugs they prescribe - Ben Goldacre
- Battling Bad Science - Ben Goldacre
- Underwater astonishments - David Gallo
- Life in the deep oceans - David Gallo
- Beware online "filter bubbles" - Eli Pariser
- What hallucinations reveals about our minds - Oliver Sacks
- Imaging at a trillion frames per second - Ramseh Raskar
Actually that's quite a lot of good ones, if you are going to watch only one of them (you're a fool) watch the last one, they film light moving!
Adam Savage's was pretty good, kind of a precursor to his videos on Tested:
It sounds dumb (like most Ted talks I've watched) but this one blew my mind. I learned how to tie my shoe the "right" way. Its only three minutes but it takes some balls to walk on stage as a grown man and lecture folks on how to tie their shoes.
It seems like your video link is broken. That said, I looked up the video and that's still the wrong way to tie your shoes since it's a four step process. You can do it in two steps and still have your bow oriented along the transverse axis.
@starvinggamer: Sorry link fixed now. This is not meant to be facetious in any way but you should totally do a video explaining the best way. I've been using Terry Moore's method and the polyester shoelaces on my work boots have become untied a whole lot less. The public needs to be informed!
