Ooooooooooooh boy, I have been friggin’ LOViN’ the new TEDTalks series on Netflix!!! Available for Instant Streaming, the TEDTalks series is an awesome library of “ideas worth spreading” on a variety of topics. So far I’ve checked out:
*Chew On This
*Sex, Secrets, & Love
I’ve completely loved all of these so far (in fact I’ve been inspired to start practicing “Weekday Veg” because of one of the talks!) and there’s still a ton of other subjects to devour and delve into as well. It’s super handy that each of the topics include a number of different talks that can range anywhere from 25/30 mins to just 4/5 mins depending on the speaker and their story/wish/idea. Since these are basically just footage of the talks taking place at the TED convention, there isn’t a lot of heavy cinema/imagery to stay glued to; I find these to be the perfect companion in the background of paperwork, creating, packaging, cooking, folding laundry, etc., etc. 😀
Without a doubt TED is at the forefront of thought/practice/ideas at this time (think the SXSW for science/technology/etc) and I’m extremely pleased that these talks have been made available to us poor souls who haven’t had the chance to attend this event IRL.
Please believe I’ll be checking out the entire library!
