In recent years TED talks have taken the world by storm. It is incredible that one person sharing an idea with passion has become so popular amongst our CGI drenched and social-media addicted world.
TED Talks (short for Technology, Entertainment and Design) are relatively short talks given by people from all walks of life. From JJ Abrams to JJ Krosoczka (no, I hadn't heard of him either), all of which have one thing in common: a passion for the subject they are talking about. These speakers (none of which get paid by the way) talk because they are passionate about their message. They take the opportunity very seriously, putting an enormous amount of time and effort into condensing their life passion into a 15 minute talk.
