Can you recommend some TED Talks for this redditor?

We noticed this great question asking for TED Talk recommendations, and wanted to put it to our community of TED commenters to help out!

If you're on reddit, please feel free to jump in with your suggestions. If you aren't, you can leave them here and we'll collect them. Note: This reddit thread is not moderated by TED staff :)

    Jul 29 2013: you can find my favourite talks here:

    maybe you can find other profiles (automated), to give you a list.
  • Aug 5 2013: Patch Adams at TEDx Utrecht University (but that dentistry-thing in his mouth is a little more distracting than it need be, I feel.)
    Christopher McDougall - Are We Born to Run
    Gever Tulley- 5 dangerous things you should let your kids do
    Brene Brown- The Power of Vulnerability
    Aaron Huey- America's Native Prisoners Of War
    Paul Stamets- 6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save The World
    Steve Keil: A manifesto for play, for Bulgaria and beyond

    (P.S. What is all that yellow behind you? My first guess is the New York is in flames. But the last I heard of New York in flames was in The Kentucky Fried Movie, and I think that was fiction.)

    Jul 31 2013: Allan Savory: How to fight desertification and reverse climate change

    I would say it deals with both human dignity and environmental preservation, and much more.

    Jul 29 2013: Welcome redditors. My name is Bob Winner and I live in the State of Arizona in the USA. Welcome to TED. You have a broad list of subject matter. Next to the TED banner at the top of the page you will see in the first column Talks and Speakers. Under Talks you will find a alphabetical list of talks on file listed by subject ... if you have a favorite speaker you can find them under speakers also alphabetically. Since you did not list a country ... you may need a translation (also in the first column) or you can select a talk and select view script that has a language option.

    I would also encourage you to look at the questions and debates.

    TEDsters as a rule do not reach a "conclusion" we discuss, debate, argue, provide some source documentation and a lot of opinions ... all with a great deal of mutual respect.

    So here is a option to you ... join TED (its free and fun) .... submit a conversation .... and let the community respond. At the end of the time frame you select ... review the comments ... chart the responses .... match your needs to the proposed TED solutions .... then in a mock or real environment apply the proposal you select.

    This is known as "crowd sourcing" and TED is a great place to get a wide variety of input. We are a highly diverse community and a broad range of professionals.

    You will see that we do not always agree but we do respect opinions, thoughts, and feelings of others.

    Again welcome and please join us .... I wish you well. Bob.
