Follow Up: If You’re Into TED Talks…

After posting Dan Pink’s TED talk yesterday, Jarret sends me the following:

http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pjGlYH-8AK8ffDa6o2bYlXg

along with the text “Not to be confused with the real TED spread…”

I couldn’t help but giggle. First, the spreadsheet is a catalog of every TED talk along with topic area, date, summary, etc. You could theoretically copy the spreadsheet and use it as a checklist to get your nerd on in a very organized fashion. (If you are unclear as to what TED is, click here. Basically, TED is a nonprofit dedicated to what it calls “ideas worth spreading.”) Second, I was impressed that Jarret made such an esoteric but entirely appropriate play on words. (The TED spread is a particular interest rate spread that even I have only vaguely heard of previously. Jarret:1; Econgirl:0)

If you are not a fan of TED talks, you should be. Here are some testimonies, via my Facebook friends:

Now if those aren’t ringing endorsements, I don’t know what is…

    When I first found myself having to explain TED Talks to friends of mine, I had to describe it as “It’s like porn, but for your brain”.

    It’s kind of the most amazing site ever (although none of my close friends agree for some reason… pffft, non-nerds)

    I’m looking at your blog through Google Chrome and not all of the images is displaying right. Did you know of this?

    I needed to put you the very small observation just to thank you as before for your personal nice solutions you’ve provided above. It is so strangely open-handed with you to give unhampered just what a number of us could possibly have offered as an e book to help with making some cash for their own end, most importantly considering the fact that you could possibly have done it in case you considered necessary. The creative ideas as well served as a great way to be sure that many people have the same eagerness like mine to learn good deal more with reference to this matter. Certainly there are some more pleasant periods in the future for those who discover your blog.
