They're fairly good, and help to keep a beginner like me up-to-date with the latest developments, practical or otherwise, as well as aware of the new and emerging potentialities of some of the fields of inquiry that I were once unaware of and, subsequently, failed to enlist in.

I have a ted talk app on my phone. I listen to them all the time. I don't even have a favorite. So many.

I actually have the book "Flow" by the third guy. Pretty interesting stuff.

An interesting take on TED Talks by a TED fellow Eddie Huang. Sheds a negative light on TED.
"If you are a racist I will attack you with the north"- Abraham Lincoln

"Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material" - Leviticus 19 19

"War is a racket" - Smedley Butler

I've seen several hundred of them, mostly on YouTube. Some are better than others, but I can't say I've seen a bad one yet.

Here are some recent ones I thought were cool:

what a coincidence one of my teachers showed my class one yesterday
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
