This Month’s Feature: Introducing, TED

Hello everyone! Hisashiburi (long-time-no-see)!

I have been meaning to share with you guys a website that I truly like, and since I am a little caught up with my thesis/lab work, I think this is the best time to introduce it.


Have any of you heard of a website called TED? Basically it is a website where you can enjoy talks from famous creative people in past TED conferences held each year. They are not merely famous, but they have GREAT IDEAS. Ideas worth sharing, as their motto says. What is interesting is that they invite experts from all types of fields, from psychology to music, from religion to biology.

Try and check it out. I am sure you will enjoy at least some of videos featured inside, especially if you are an IDEA LOVER (don’t know if that makes any sense!). And I don’t get any commission by introducing this website, by the way. Of course, you don’t have to watch all the videos at once, but at least you have an alternative to go to whenever you get frustrated that I haven’t updated my blog!

You can search for yourself some good talks in there, but if you want a quick sneak peek at some of the ‘good ones’, here are a few speakers which made my list:

1 ) John Francis walks the earth (About earth and the environment. Hear his story of not talking for 17 years!)

2 ) Malcolm Gladwell on spaghetti sauce (On consumer psychology)

3 ) Robert Full: Learning from the gecko’s tail (On learning about how nature works)

4 ) Dan Ariely asks, are we in control of our own decisions? (On our own psychological irrationality)

5 ) Woody Norris invents amazing things (On some cool inventions)

6 ) Ken Robinson says school kills creativity (Lookng at school education from another point of view)

7Β  ) Rory Sutherland: Life lessons from an ad man (On how we see things makes all the difference)

8 ) David Pogue says “Simplicity sells” (On intelligent design)

9 ) Tony Robbins asks why we do what we do (On human psychology)

…and much more!

Welcome to TED, haven for idea lovers.

P.S.: If there are any others that you like, feel free to share it with us!

  6. Assalamualaikum wbt..
    Kadangkala seronok mendengar perbahasan orang bijak pandai.
    Baru-baru ini saya pernah menonton video bekas Presiden Amerika Syarikat,Al Gore tentang pemanasan global.
    Bagi saya menonton video perbahasan Al Gore bukan sahaja ilmu tentang pemanasan global sahaja yang telah dipelajari malah ilmu tentang bagaimana untuk membuat presentation dengan baik sekali.
    Sekian,wassalam.
