TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independent TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

 I was told of TED some time ago. I browsed it briefly but was too busy to give the attention it deserved. A few days ago, I watched a few at a friend's house and then I met up with the person who had mentioned it to me in the first place. She is in the process of moving jobs and that triggered me to go back. It's never too late, I guess. Now, I'm addicted. I download a few to my iPad and watch or listen to them on the way to work, over dinner, over lunch... For me, the most inspiring so far has been Sheryl Sandberg's Why we have too few women leaders although Barry Schwartz The paradox of choice comes at a close second place.
