What's the best TED Talk ever? That's the little debate taking place on Reddit.com, and the answer is not obvious, seeing that TED now has over 500 talks available in its archive. (You can find a constantly updated list of every TED Talk in a Google spreadsheet here.)
Now, what are some of the Reddit favorites? Here are five talks that get frequent mentions.
- Sir Ken Robinson on "Do Schools Kill Creativity" (See my mea culpa in the comments.)
- Dan Gilbert on "Why are We Happy"
- Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) on Nurturing Creativity (Not one of my personal favorites.)
- Richard Dawkins on our "Queer" Universe
- Dan Ariely asks "Are We in Control of our Own Decisions?"
Meanwhile, it's worth mentioning that TED keeps its own running list of its 10 most popular talks. Some good ones here. And now your turn. Tell us your favorites in the comments below, and don't be shy.
