TED Talks

Of all the distractions, entertainment, and discussions that the inter-tubes provided in 2007, I think my favorite discovery was the Ted Talks [1]. It consistently provides the most curious, thought-provoking, surprising sets of ideas found anywhere on the web.

Instead of watching online, I finally clicked over to the Apple iTunes podcast section, went to TedTalks [2] and selected "Get All." An hour later, all 101 chats were  downloaded and iPod ready. Sure, its not as funny as Ricky Gervais’ podcasts [3] — but they are a whole lot more educational. 

Its internet Barry’s gift to commuting Barry for 2008 . . .
