    Feb 16 2011: In my personal experience, I believe by sharing the link of interesting TED talk with them, works better. Almost, everyone I personally recommended to watch a particular talk, replied me, saying thanks and they loved it. It is really a contagious. And they glad that they have something amazing to share with their friend.

    And I repeat it. It contagious.

      Feb 17 2011: I have tried that, and in my experience it was a hit and miss. Usually, people are so busy that it is hard for them to put aside the average 20 minutes of a TED talk. They put it the talk on hold, planning to watch it later until they forget about it. :(
