@hailinel: So YOU were the one who bought Dragon Warrior 3 from that guy before I showed up. I was so disheartened when he said that he sold it 2 hours before I got there. You did miss the boxed copy of Dragon Warrior 2 sadly.
Also, TED talks can and are about pretty much anything. Hell, there is a TED "talk" about how to properly tie your shoes. There have been plenty of examples of people being on a TED stage telling the story of their lives in a way to bring up a point that they are trying to make. Some are better at making that point than others.
