TEDTalk: A Stroke of Insight

One of my favorite sources of inspiration, information and education are the TEDTalks. If you’ve not checked out TED (www.TED.com), you’re missing some incredible stuff! As their website says:

“TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

“The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).”

The TED website makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free. Almost 200 talks are available online, with more added each week. I recommend you subscribe to them so you get regular updates.

“Ideas worth spreading.” That’s the tagline for TEDTalks, and I can assure you it’s dead-on accurate. You could spend a day or two just taking in the ideas spread through the talks available online.

Stroke One of the most powerful, entertaining, and insightful talks on TED is one recently released of Jill Bolte Taylor’s experience of having a stroke. What makes this so fascinating is the fact that Bolte Taylor is a brain researcher – a Neuroanatomist. Even she thought – while having the stroke – that it is “so cool” that a brain researcher could experience this from the inside. Her description of what went on in her brain, in her two hemispheres of the brain, is… well, I’m going to leave it to you to listen and watch her, as I could never do her justice in trying to explain what she experienced.

Stop everything you’re doing right now and take 20 minutes to watch. Go to http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/229 and be moved. It will be worth it – this is my way of spreading “Ideas worth spreading.”
