Last night I spent some time researching TED Talks as part of developing my contingency plan, Plan B, for TEDxDarwinLive 2013. TEDxDarwinLive 2013 is a webcast, and experience has shown that sometimes, usually when you have an audience, the Internet does not work or does not work well enough to stream video. So, when I organise a webcast event, I always spend time developing Plan B.
The problem is, tonight was the first time a have been immersed in TED and TEDx Talks for a few months and I found myself actually wanting to watch Plan B. So I have written this post and set it to automatically publish at the start of TEDxDarwinLive 2013. Whether the webcast works or not, I wanted to share some great TED Talks. I hope you enjoy them.
