The Best of TED Talks

For the longest while, I never understood what TED was. Most of what I gleamed from Twitter was that it was some sort of lecture series about social media and technology. However, there’s so much more to it that I’m disappointed I didn’t discover it sooner. So for today’s instalment of our Best of the Interweb series, it’s a look at some of the best TED talks on the internet.
