The world is full of ideas: Big and small ones both almost equally spread among the human minds. Some of these ideas are never shared and are lost until someone else gets them again. Some of these ideas get spread online and while some know where to find them, most don’t know about it. One such initiative for spreading great ideas is TED.
Welcome to this short post of Narrating The Dream and we are here to talk about this wonderful organization for spreading ideas. Quoting them directly from the official website:
TED is 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 can go on and on about how this site is worth visiting and what is the worth of these videos (priceless!) but there are some things not meant to be spoiled. The TED talks (and in fact, the entire site) are one of those things that are only meant to be enjoyed.
Head on to the official website of TED now and start watching. There are lots of people to be learned from, thought of and (most importantly) admired as they will help you redefine your thoughts, words, actions, society, country and the world.
And now I will mention some ideas that caught my attention (and yes, I’m increasing my word count by this as well):
Moshe Safdie How to reinvent the apartment building
Eman Mohammed The courage to tell a hidden story
Mac Barnett Why a good book is a secret door
Avi Reichental What’s next in 3D printing
Shubhendu Sharma How to grow a tiny forest anywhere
And these are only from the recent ones. There are hundreds of videos to watch and enjoy.
