Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education
Where was this when I was in School? The badge system noted at the end of the talk I something I think should be used even more since it gets something the kids (and us other users) something to compare and help each other achieve that would work better than standard grades! "I'm so close to my 10th badge! can't wait to get my badge for having 10 badges!"

Has a TED Talk ever influenced you? How?
I am an addict. A TED addict. My addiction has gone up and down during the years and began somewhere in 2006/2007. I have seen many talks and many talk several times (despite having Tony Robbins voice saying: "Get a freaking life" in my head). I can remember when started uploading one new talk every weekday. It felt like someone had decided that I would have my birthday every week. What TED has done for me, is that it has opened up a well of inspiration, motivation and has become a tool for me to connect to people. When I recommend TEDtalks to someone that does no know of TED yet, I always look forward to hear back from them since I know it will be a success. Many of the talks put words to feelings, thoughts or behavior that you are not aware of and opens up the world, and makes you look at it in a new perspective. I could give many examples of this but will focus on two of many talks that I go back to when I need to be cheered up. The first is: "Willard Wigan: Hold your breath for micro-sculpture" that shows how you can motivate yourself to do the extraordinary. This talk made me applaud and laugh, even though I watching it alone. The other talk is one that shows how far TED can reach, and how much hope it can give. "William Kamkwamba on building a windmill" A true feelgood story. My strongest appreciation goes out too all those involved in TED, speakers, translators and organizers.

Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!
This is a talk I think most Tedsters have been waiting 4 years for. Sir Ken Robinson is an amazing writer and his talks are brilliant. If you read this Sir Robinson - I salut you for your witty way of getting across an increadebly important message. Thank you.

Randy Pausch: Really achieving your childhood dreams
I first saw this great talk weeks after it was posted on youtube and followed him on his blog until he passed away. I really admire this his way of getting through via humour and his "head fakes". I have a signed copy of his book on my night table and have given several copies as gifts for friends and family. His time management talks are also worth looking at. Thank you Randy, my favourite actor in the Star Trek movie!
