The TED Talks videos have gained popularity over the last few years, probably due in large part to their recent availability online. For those unfamiliar with TED (Technology Entertainment and Design), it is a group of conferences formed to disseminate “ideas worth spreading.” They share many of the conference’s presentations in the form of freely available TED Talks videos.
Currently, over 700 of these videos are available online, covering a wide variety of topics. If you’re interested in topics pertaining to technology, Computerworld just published an article entitled, “8 must-see TED talks for IT pros.” It lists 8 of the most intriguing tech-related TED presentations and, I have to say, they really picked some good ones.
All in all, there are some pretty thought-provoking presentations in there which provide some interesting insight into the future of computing.
