It seems maybe I'm the last to know but I just found out about TED Talks. TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is apparently a conference bringing together people from all different disciplines to share their ideas and inspire each other.
Those talks are available online at www.ted.com and they extremely inspiring. They are each only allowed to be up to 20 minutes so they are very easy to watch or listen to. So far of the ones I've watched these were the most inspiring for me.
Alan Russell: Why can't we grow new body parts? O.....M.....G! Star Trek medicine is HERE!
Jeff Hawkins: Brain science is about to fundamentally change computing. I hope he succeeds!
Carolyn Porco: Fly me to the moons of Saturn. She is so passionate you can't help but be infected with her enthusiasm.
Vilayanur Ramachandran: A journey to the center of your mind.
Theo Jansen: The art of creating creatures. This guy is crazy! He's making self running robots that run on wind power.
I still have many to hear. Check them out and tell me your favorites!
