The TED Conferences are generally held in the UK, but have been branching out to other countries (India in particular) and have been talking about specific fields (in particular, medical otherwise known as TED MED).The organization is a non-profit and most of the material is available online. You should keep your eye on TED regularly because:

  • The guests they have are generally pretty interesting. They talk about things that range from eye care in India to wireless electricity.
  • The site has new videos everyday. If you ever said, “I want to learn 1 new thing everyday”, then the TED site is perfect for you to do exactly that.
  • Admission to the site is free, to attend it is way too expensive. So, these videos is a way to gain access to discussion that would not normally be allowed even 10 years ago due to technical achievements.

As long as you’re interested in new ideas and thought provoking discussion, I can thoroughly recommend watching and keeping tabs on the TED site.

Also known as PC, John Hodgman is a hilarious man. Why? Here’s why:

  • Today in the Past podcast. Daily “facts” about the past.
  • His spots on the Daily Show are always full of “truth”
  • A brief digression at the TED conference. This is what won me over and really put John Hodgman as one of the funniest comedians out there right now.

Somehow, John Hodgman never fails to make me laugh. Smart, sharp and sly comedy at its best.
