1377 TED Talks Listed in a Neat Spreadsheet — And More Stellar Culture Links on the Web

A quick fyi for TED heads. In early 2011 we mentioned that someone put together a handy online spreadsheet that lists 1377 TED Talks, with handy links to each individual video. It’s worth mentioning the spreadsheet again because this evolving Google doc has now grown beyond 1200 talks. That works out to more than 340 hours of “riveting talks by remarkable people.” Because the page gets updated on a regular basis, you’ll definitely want to bookmark it and keep tabs on the new additions.

Now time for more good culture links, all previously featured on our happenin’ Twitter stream.
