What's the best hidden gem in the TED archive?
One of my favorite talks, which I think quite convincingly challenges a very common part of popular wisdom, is this talk where Steven Pinker argues our species has been on a continuous trajectory towards a more peaceful existence, in spite of all intuitions to the contrary. http://www.ted.com/talks/steven_pinker_on_the_myth_of_violence.html
