Why Download Ted Talks?
From The Ted Talk site about page:
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference and TEDGlobal — TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
Ted Talks are videos which have topics that inspire and make humanity better, and are free to watch and download. Download and watch them to get inspired or to feel better on a crummy day.
