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.
