I’ve Watched Over 2,000 TED Talks. These Are My Favorites

I worked at TED for five years, from 2013 to 2018, and in that time, I watched over 2,000 TED Talks. In fact, I saw many of them multiple times — first in rehearsal, then onstage, then on video, and often again in a shorter cut of the video. I’ve seen talks on absolutely every subject, including a truly unreasonable number of talks about baby coral.
