Creativity on TED
I often make the assumption that everyone has heard of TED, a non-profit organization that started as an annual conference that shared ‘ideas worth spreading’.

Ken Robinson’s 2006 talk is perhaps the most famous (and entertaining) on this subject, but his talk is only one of a number of great ideas presented on TED.
