A quick fyi for TED heads in our audience: Right here, you can find an online spreadsheet that lists 875 TEDTalks, with handy links to each individual video. This evolving Google doc will give you access to more than 265 hours of “riveting talks by remarkable people.” Because the page is updated on a regular basis, you’ll definitely want to bookmark it and keep tabs on the new additions.
On a related note, TED has also just rolled out TEDBooks, a new digital book series that delivers powerful ideas in 20,000 words or less. That’s about 1/3 the length of a traditional book. TEDBooks are currently being sold for $2.99 through Amazon as “Kindle Singles.” You can learn more about the initiative on TED’s blog or via BrainPickings, or simply visit Amazon to preview the first three books in the series:
- Homo Evolutis by Juan Enriquez and Steve Gullans
- The Happiness Manifesto by Nic Marks
- Beware Dangerism! by Gever Tulley
