TED

Because I'm a complete slacker, I have only just had a proper look at TED, despite many previous recommendations.

If anyone's reading this, if you know of any talk/presentation that is particularly good and/or interesting, I'd really like to know about it :-)

Many thanks for that - I'll take a look shortly :-)

It's not quite on any aspect on cognition, it's on "dispelling common myths about the so-called developing world", but it sounds interesting, particularly the promise that "You’ve never seen data presented like this". Not sure whether to be worried or excited :-)
