TED in 3 Minutes 3-Minute Talks

If you're hungry for inspiration, but short on time, these snack-sized talks are for you. In 3 minutes, more or less, these speakers surprise and delight, amuse and inform. Topics range from scientific breakthroughs (you can alter your genes through lifestyle choices, Dean Ornish says), to cultural shifts (The future of the world is in cities, Stewart Brand explains) to poignant, pacey poetry (See: Rives controls the Internet) and quick advice (Richard St. John's secrets of success).
