Favourite TED Talks25 May 2009
"Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions" by Dan Ariely is one of the best books I've read for a long time. Here he is talking about it at TED.
While on the subject of decision making, Joachim de Posada shares a landmark experiment on delayed gratification and how it can predict future success. With fascinating video of children trying their hardest not to eat the marshmallow.
I'm also interested in what's happening as the worlds of TV and the internet collide. So this one by Peter Hirshberg also caught my attention.
