I am a big TED fan (at least as much as I can tell from the 6 or 7 talks I’ve watched). I have fantasized about spending the $7500 to attend the conference in person and share air space with all those really smart, inspiring people, but . . .until I take that plunge, there’s always YouTube. The Huffington Post recently compiled a list of the 18 most inspiring (in their opinion) TED talks from 2011. I’ve only watched one of them previously, so I’m excited to make my way through!
