I love all the conferences from TED bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. But some TED shows stands out from other and so In my today’s post i thought of Sharing some of the BEST TED talks I have seen, which bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less)

    Love Your Post, This one in particular….Just good..

  2. What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
