Top 5 Inspiring TED Talks

Have you heard of TED? They are a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

I love watching TED and TEDx talks on YouTube, and I thought that today I would share a few of my favourite talks.

Amanda Palmer: The art of asking

TEDxVancouver – Sean Aiken – What Makes You Come Alive?

Sarah Kay: If I should have a daughter …

Elizabeth Gilbert: Success, failure and the drive to keep creating
