Main Question or Discussion Point

Do you guys ever watch the videos on TED.com?

http://www.ted.com/

They have some amazing speakers. My faves:
Ron Eglash on "African fractals", Jane Goodall on "What separates us from the apes"
and Jill Bolte Taylor, a brain scientist, describing her own experience of having a stroke.
