Alternatives to TED.
TED for those of you that don’t know is a non profit site devoted to inspirational ideas worth spreading.
TED has over 1100 talks initially covering the topics of Technology, Education and Design which gives you the anagram TED, although today the subject matter is now much broader from science to business and important global issues.
The Talks are presentations by experts, celebrities but most importantly individuals passionate about their subject matter all getting about 18 minutes or less to get their message across. TED talks are educational and inspiring, personally I’ve spent hours watching and listening to Ted talks so I’d encourage you all to make a visit to the TED site and watch a few talks for yourself.
This reason for this short article is to tell you not just about TED talks but also to list the other sites I’ve found on the net that delivers the same type of content as TED.com
For those of you familiar with TED, you may be thinking are there any alternatives to TED Talks on the internet?
Alternatives to TED Talks
Here are another dozen other sites, some with the same ethos, some with more content, and some certainly inspirational.
These sites are not TED but they are definitely worth a look.
I most also admit that researching this topic has opened my eyes to some other great resources out there, and please let me know if I have missed any other sites that are worth a mention.
