Apparently, I ‘ve been living under a rock for the last five years. There’s this website that has these 17 minutes talks on all kinds of science topics. It’s called Ted Talks and can be found at http://www.ted.com/talks
The presenters are from everywhere in the world and are the tops of the fields but the information is presented so that everyone can understand it (and have a laugh or two).
I found the site because Netflix has been adding a pathetic jumble of new content. Netflix groups the lectures by topic but the website is easy to navigate and I can’t wait to spend a bit of time everyday learning something new.
Already I have the seeds of a few new books
