"TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker "ideas worth spreading," talks were released online." They reached a significant milestone recently with 50 million views since they debuted online two years ago. TEDTalks are distributed under a Creative Commons license in multiple formats and on multiple websites including TED.com, iTunes, YouTube, and others. Additionally, only about half of the views come from viewers inside the US, so they clearly have an international audience. They have cobbled together a short video compilation (7 mins 30 sec.) of their all-time Top Ten videos, as of June 2008. If you are not familiar with TedTalks it would be well worth your time to watch this compilation. If you are familiar with TedTalk, you might want to see how many of the Top Ten videos you have already watched (only 7 for me). -BD
