One Response to “All About TED”

  1. Marc Brazeau says:

    I used to love watching TED Talks because it was a pretty safe bet that it would be 18 minutes well spent. I would get a dense, insightful little nugget on something that would inform me about something I didn’t know about or change my mind about something I did. It was a very well curated project.

    Now there are too damn many Talks and the TED logo is less a guarantee of quality. I see committing to watching a Talk as a much riskier decision when it comes to budgeting my time.

    I’ve graduated to iTunesU which is dominated by Yale. Start with David Blight on Civil War and Reconstruction. It’s 25 hours instead of 18 minutes, but the greater the investment, the greater the payoff.
