TED: Ideas Worth Sharing. The TED website is awesome. It lets you search all the talks and even organize them based on criteria like how much they’re watched , number of comments people have posted on them or the date they were filmed.

I was excited to see that one of my favorites, Elizabeth Gilbert on nurturing creativity, was in the top ten most viewed. I was also ecstatic to see that there were nine much loved talks I hadn’t seen at all, and proceeded to spend most of a morning cramming my brain with inspirational fuel.

Check these out, and then click around at random to watch more. I have never stumbled upon a TED talk that was less than thrilling. After you get really jazzed about TED, you’ll want to get tickets to TEDx Albuquerque. Get the details here. It’s a chance for us to absorb some of the TED talk energy live.

AND, yes, this is the blog on which you should comment if you want FREE tickets! Just tell us what your favorite TED talk is, and the Alibi will give a pair of tickets to the first two people who leave a comment. Then I can spend the afternoon watching your favorite talks. Sweet.
