TED, no bill

If you've ever wondered what a conference is like, or even if you know and no longer want anything to do with them, go to this site now.

The TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Conference is an amazing gathering of some of the brightest thinkers and doers in almost all realms of human effort. Some of the brightest people in the world are challenged to give "the talk of their lives" in 18 minutes. They have a large number of the presentations given at these conferences on their site available free - streaming or download.

These are the best videos I have ever seen. I've been watching them for hours. They're engaging, educational, inspiring and frequently funny. I guarantee it will be the smartest thing you've done all day. Thanks to BoingBoing for pointing me there.
