TED Podcasts : Extremely high value

TED is a conference.

Traditionally there is one 'TED' each year in California but last year there was the first Global edition - aptly named TEDGlobal - in Oxford, UK and more are to follow.

There are thousands of conferences each year but this one really is different.

Just take a look at one of the talks held at TED and changes are you're immediately hooked.

You can do this right now because they are made available through a podcast.

Here it is:

Check out Al Gore doing standup comedy (and talking about the climate):

Ever since attending TEDGlobal 2005 I sure am hooked.

I will gladly save up for the (considerable) expenses and take vacation days to attend another one of these intellectual trips.

(Next one probably TEDGlobal 2007 in Africa.)
