In case you've missed the TED movement (or you're just hungry for more inspiration) I've listed 5 interesting online videos below. They're not all from TED and they vary in length, but they are all thought provoking and entertaining.
So go and watch them now. Be honest. You were looking for an excuse to procrastinate anyway ;)
See you tomorrow!
