Looking to expand your intellectual interests and pursuits? Take a look at TED – specifically ted.com.

TED conferences and activities are filmed and posted – speakers are some of the best at what they do and are challenged to tell a compelling story in 18 minutes or less.

The website has an archive of thousands of videos, and links to speaker websites where even more of the same in greater depth is available.

You can sign up for TED news on Twitter, join the TED Linked In Group, or join the TED website itself for access to forums and Q&A threads with the speakers.

Try TED, you’ll be glad you did.
