Hello. Today I listened to two Ted Talks with a friend. One of the talks was, Julian Treasure: "5 Ways To Listen Better" and the other was, Mark Ronson, "How Sampling Transformed Music." I enjoyed both of them. The talks were an assigned lesson for my friend, I listened to them in support. If I could, I would take an entire day and just listen to TED Talks. Maybe one day soon I will treat myself to at least a morning or an afternoon of this. I've seen about four of them and they open your mind up; make you think, and spark ideas. What a fascinating channel.

TED is owned by The Sapling Foundation, a private nonprofit foundation, a 501(c)3 organization under US tax code. It was established in 1996 by Chris Anderson, who was at that time a magazine publishing entrepreneur.
The goal of the foundation is to foster the spread of great ideas. It aims to provide a platform for the world's smartest thinkers, greatest visionaries and most inspiring teachers, so that millions of people can gain a better understanding of the biggest issues faced by the world, and a desire to help create a better future. Core to this goal is a belief that there is no greater force for changing the world than a powerful idea. Consider:
  • An idea can be created out of nothing except an inspired imagination.
  • An idea weighs nothing.
  • It can be transferred across the world at the speed of light for virtually zero cost.
  • And yet an idea, when received by a prepared mind, can have extraordinary impact.
  • It can reshape that mind's view of the world.
  • It can dramatically alter the behavior of the mind's owner.
  • It can cause the mind to pass on the idea to others.
