If you search your memory banks back to yesterday, I laid claim to the fact that I think I have a lot of general knowledge.
One thing about which I have almost zero knowledge is TED Talks.
I had never even heard of TED Talks until a colleague was mentioning it to me last year. He thought I was kidding when I said that I didn’t know what he was talking about.
I thought he was talking about that talking teddy bear from that movie that I never saw but heard it wasn’t a movie for kids. Shhhhh…….don’t tell him.
Talk about being clueless. But I checked it out
because I was embarrassed that I knew nothing about this wildly popular phenomenon.
Yuck. I looked at a bunch of different ones on topics that interest me. Utterly boring. I found myself concentrating on the microphone/earbud thingy they were using. Then I saw you could read the scripts. So I did that.
But it isn’t like reading books or articles. Everyone has different tastes, and mine don’t run to TED talks. I feel guilty because as I researched, it was like, Barb, do you live under a rock? How do you not know of this?
Are you guys fans of TED talks? If yes, and you can pinpoint why, I’m really interested to know. I’m thinking the reason I don’t like them is my wildly short attention span.
Please let me know your opinion on TED talks.
