Happiness as Anarchy #34: TED talks


If you haven’t seen a TED talk, go and watch one now at www.ted.com. It is phenomenal collection of world class talks on an vast array of topics, from music to neuroscience, nanotechnology to public art.  TED talks first appeared online in 2006 and were an offshoot of the TED – technology, entertainment, design – Conference. Although most talks only go for 12 minutes or so, I could happily let hours disappear watching the speakers talk about all kinds of things; topics rendered completely fascinating by the way they present. This is public speaking at its finest.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Sir Ken Robinson on schools killing creativity

Bréné Brown on vulnerability

Karl Honoré on the Art of Slowness

Sarah Kay’s spoken word on parenting
