In transit between home, work, then back home again (about 50 minutes each way) I’ve been listening / watching every TED video thats available. This is made exceptionally easy using iTunes lovely PODcast subscription services.
Here are some of the ones I’ve been enjoying lately:
- Habits of happiness : Matthieu Richard, who is a French Buddhist monk gives a talk about happiness, what it means to be happy and how to attain an enlightened state of happiness.
- African fractals, in buildings and braids : Ron Eglash, this is a hard one to describe, its just interesting.
- Compassion : Daniel Goleman, His talk is very free flowing and touches many great ideas. I also love his voice and the way he speaks.
- Winning the oil endgame : Amory Lovins , the environment is one of the more popular subjects, and the ones where we they actually get into it with some facts and numbers, and a way out. Its very informative.
Theres a lot more, but they are hard to find and if your wise you’ll get over to TED.com immediately and discover some of your own favorites.No comments
