Thin slicing (Read Malcolm Gladwell's "Blink: the power of thinking without thinking" for more on that)
I have been watching TED talks online for quite a few years now (and have recently attended TEDxThessaloniki and TEDMED Live Athens), as many of the themes dealt with are of interest to me and to my line of work (conference interpreter/translator covering a wide range of issues, e.g. international relations/affairs, environmental issues, health care issues, financial affairs, humanitarian issues, development etc.). Having dabbled in subtitling in the past I decided to combine these two interests as a pastime and as a way to contribute to the TED initiative myself.
