TED : Ideas worth spreading

Leave a Comment is currently one of my most favorite websites to visit. I love searching the archives and seeing what some of the innovative minds of our day have had to say. The site is full of videos with authors, scientists, programmers and entrepreneurs all on various subjects.  One I really like was by Elizabeth Gilbert on Nurturing Creativity and then there is another done by J.J. Abrams the creator of amazing television series like LOST.

The site is overall well organized, well stocked and a veritable online feasting ground for inspiration.

This morning, I was perusing my google reader and they had a TED video featuring Evan Williams of Twitter. I couldn't help myself, but take this little distraction and hear what he had to say. I was not disappointed. My favorite part of the discussion is at the end, when they pull up a Twitter search to see what the audience had been twittering about Evan Williams while he was talking the results being both funny and interesting. How amazing it is that today we can post our opinions in less that 140 characters and in like than 5 seconds. Amazing, right?

As you can tell Frankenhoodie and I are Twitter fans, and twittering is a fun way to pass one-liners between ourselves and also among our friends.

I've put the video below of Evan Williams:
