Addicted to TED

Hello. My name is Ashley and I am an addict.

I am addicted to TED. Specifically, to videos of talks given at the annual Technology, Entertainment, Design Conference. I’m spending hours sitting and playing Freecell while listening to one TED talk after another.

The TED Conference manages to invite some of the most interesting people in the world to come and give presentations lasting from five to twenty minutes. These talks are recorded and made available for free at http://www.ted.com/talks.

What makes them addictive is not only that the speakers are both entertaining and highly informative, but that the site suggests speakers that you might want to hear next, leading to you to keep on listening to one speaker after another after another in an endless chain.

I would tell you all about the dozens of engaging talks that I have heard recently, but I don’t have time. I have to get back to the TED site and listen to the next talk.

I am hopelessly addicted.

Yours, Ashley

    Hi Ashley,

    I am a big fan of TED as well. I came across this one as well the other day: http://www.thersa.org/
    I suggest you check it out as well.
    I found them mostly due to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6XAPnuFjJc

    It is one of the best talks I have seen in a very long time, thoroughly recommended.

    Happy watching 🙂

    Sheesh! Shouldn’t you be doing something more important? Like say… writing pornography for all your fans? 😉

    (PS – I don’t think I’m addicted, but I’ve become a big fan of the TED talks too.)

  3. Yes. The guilt of not writing stories for my fans is what has driven me to confess my addiction.
    Maybe I’d feel better if I punished myself.

      Hmmmm… now how would you do that? I’m sure it would really only make you feel better if you wrote about it :p

    Fora TV is good also. But since they moved to a subscription model with “premium” content it’s kind of gone downhill. Check it out anyway. Plenty of interesting talks there for free still.

  5. I went in search for a fellow TED addict because I figured I can’t be the only one. You can’t stop with just one. 🙂
