I love TED Talks. They have been bringing inspiration, entertainment and emotion to my life in the last years. As 2013 draws to a close, TED has posted 1600+ talks, each representing an idea worth spreading. I have shared some of my favorites talks in this blog in a number of occasions and today I want to share the 20 most-watched talks as of December 2013.
One of the things that makes this list so incredible is the fact that it spans so many areas of interest, from education to happiness, statistics to creativity, tech demos to illusions.
Which is your favorite one ? I definitely vote for Sir Ken Robinson!
