Ted: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

    Some great blogs there, Ryan – I’m a big fan of Burchard. As for Six Minutes, it’s a treasure trove – maybe Andrew will see this list and start writing again. I’m a big fan of Dr. Michelle Mazur’s blog as well as Lisa Braithwaite’s, and Michael Hyatt’s.

  • I like how some of these tend to use video, and others are written. That way, you can take your pick, to suit your mood or needs at the time.

    When I first saw a Brendon Burchard video, I was transfixed! You might like the post where I highlight 4 great techniques he uses when speaking with paper-based visuals.
