My favorite top 9 TED talks – what about yours?
Today I´ll share with you my current top 9 TED Talks I´ve watched repeatedly.
All in all this is one inspiring, eye-opening and entertaining hour.
The talks are actually about different topics. I chose them either because they have some worth sharing content or the speaker is just fantastic in his way of presenting/talking.
Google, Wiki, … the obsolete know-it-all?
A pretty entertaining and also interesting TED Talk by Ken Jennings discusses the importance and power of knowledge.
TED´s headline: Trivia whiz Ken Jennings has made a career as a keeper of facts; he holds the longest winning streak in history on the U.S. game show Jeopardy. But in 2011, he played a challenge match against supercomputer Watson — and lost.
After talking a while about his career and experiences as trivia whiz he finds a perfect shift to the important topic knowledge.
The way we think about charity is dead wrong.
“I want to talk about social innovation and social entrepreneurship” … Dan Pallotta, founder of AIDS Ride, starts his TED Talk.
His talk is about charity and nonprofits and how many nonprofits are rewarded for “how little they spend – not for what they get done”.
This is a great point – great for discussions as well – and I will get back to it after a short introduction into the talks as Dan did.
Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy
In 2010 at a TED Conference Derek Sivers showed a 3 minutes clip about a guy dancing at a festival. The clip is not only entertaining to watch – it shows how movements get started!
