12 because I couldn't narrow it down to 10. And I'm sure that this list will be growing over the next year. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. It is a nonprofit
"devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seeks a deeper understanding of the world."
I can't tell you the first TED talk I ever saw, or when I first started watching them. I can tell you my favorites. Watch, learn, and be inspired.
