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.
