TED Talks

Sunday, May 18, 2014, 1:30 p.m.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: technology, entertainment, design.  TED Conferences feature today’s most fascinating thinkers and doers giving the talks of their lives… in 18 minutes or less!  

Each month we will watch 2-3 of these short, inspiring TED Talks, and follow them with a stimulating conversation. TED Talks image

  • Oliver Sacks -What hallucination reveals about our mind
