    What Do You All Think Of TED...?

    Oh, yeah. Good point. I have fun listening too. Although there was a time when I had a speech class, and that was pretty fun. Although, I'm pretty sure I'm not qualified enough to give a great 20-minute speech on life or anything profound.

    Well, ok... if anyone here could do their own TED talk, what would it be on?

    That may be true. But I'm also finding lots of TED videos that are just cartoons of math or logic problems.

    I agree. They should take everyone into consideration. Still, that's cool that your company has special speakers come in. That's the next best thing to going to school and getting to go on a field trip! ...What kind of cool company brings in speakers aside from maybe Google?

    And yus, I would like to be one of the ppl who read more than watches or listens... but I have not had much success with books... I cannot find a classic that has defined me. I note that "Of Mice And Men" successfully made me cry. But I found things like "Wicked," the musical, to be better than the book (the book was too political). "The Ice Storm" movie was better than the book (although, I can appreciate why the book ended that way). And "Orange Is The New Black" on Netflix was far more captivating than the actual book ...It seems the list goes on and on. It is yet to be determined, tho, if "Eat, Pray, Love" is better on screen... I think they only aired it once on TV and I was too tired to make it thru the whole thing, but I was quite fond of the book. And one day I would like to read "A Clockwork Orange," because I really loved the movie (until one of my colleagues never managed to return it to me, LOL, I suppose because they loved it as well!!!). However, I also feel that as long as you can find a book in a library, you should be able to read it for free online. That is how I ended up liking "The Alchemist," but then was also disappointed by "Lolita." SooOoOOooo.... That's why these >20 minute videos are so easy to digest. They're easily attained, easy to do while multitasking with 2 screens, and you can always click on another one if you don't like the first (but that has seemed to yet happen).

    Well... The coding says this, when you copy the link address: "blob:https://embed.ted.com/16edebd0-4261-4204-8ec9-96666d8ab98d" ...Which doesn't list anything from YouTube, but it does for TED. I know how to copy/paste code from YouTube, that's easy. I will play around with it and figure it out.

    Interesting! ...I must admit, I do not know how to encode video to the forums as you do. I wanted to check TED for this video to see when it had come out, but the address did not take me to a successful place. So now... I am watching all of Hans Rosling's videos and find them all very wonderful! ...Do you have this book recommended by Gates? Have you read it? ...I wish that a book like that would be some type of required reading in schools, to promote positivity and strength together, in the world, as a whole.

    Wow! *makes reference to a vision board* Thank you for teaching me that there's an actual name for it! Reticular activating system. How cool is that?

    Where Can I Find The Lindens?

    Just curious... I'm interested to know what is going on in SL, with them involved. ...Do they attend meetings or something, where they discuss things, and the public are allowed to go and observe? Or is it much more of a secret "behind the scenes" type thing? I have seen them at shows sometimes, which has been really neat. And I totally understand they are just like us, who want to sometimes just relax and have fun. I have also seen them kindly doing behind-the-scenes stuff to land, and didn't bother them. But I'm more curious to see them in a "business" or "professional" like environment (where there might be a Q&A or anything of the such?). And am curious which Lindens I might run into at those types of things. ...I don't have a bunch of questions or anything that I need to bombard them with. I'm just curious, and it's more like an "I really like this place, I'd like to learn from them" kind of thing... Because you tend to emulate role models of things you have a lot of passion & respect for. That's all. Thanks! 😁
