I’m consistently amazed by the quality of free educational content online. You can learn about almost anything at a pretty high level from any place you want. Yet so many of us still spend time looking at memes and watching silly YouTube videos. Educational content needs to be entertaining if we’re going to consume it voluntarily on a regular basis, and that’s why TED has grown so dramatically over the last few years. TED is a New York, NY based non-profit “devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.” The organization got its start in 1984 as a conference series centered around technology, entertainment, and design. That description still applies, but the set of topics has broadened and so has TED’s reach. Now you can view videos all of the best TED talks online for free.
Take an hour or two today and watch a few TED talks. Seriously. You’ll be better for it. You can browse TED talks by topic, by date, or by categorizations like courageous, funny, and beautiful. Some of my favorites are the brain scientist who studied her stroke as it happened and Hans Rosling’s new insights on poverty, but I’ll admit that I don’t watch nearly as many TED talks as I should. If you’re doing better than I am and can’t stop watching TED talks, then you need to look at TED’s Jobs page. Right now they have some great opportunities for new/recent grads including Administrative Assistant, Distribution Coordinator, Digital Traffic Coordinator, and User Experience Designer. I can’t think of many places that are cooler to work at than TED, so don’t pass these jobs up.
