With that out of the way, yes, this talk is particularly awesome. The whole "distributed industrial production" concept - whether the DIY open source aspect or through 3D printing - seems key when considering true 21st century solutions to socioeconomic problems; the essence of TED, I feel.
Here's his talk, if you haven't seen it:

Checking on this with our tech team, because disabling playback doesn't sound like something we would have done on purpose. Will update.
TED is a nonprofit, so we're not banking, though I wish we had a little more money to improve some of our tech, frankly. You should be able to watch and listen on any platform without the inconvenience you're describing here. Sorry for that!

This actually hit really close to home for me. I'm a student in mechanical engineering, that somehow got the amazing opportunity to build a cubesat with my team, as part of a competition.
We recently had a successful kickstarter, and are currently in the manufacturing phase. And we got the opportunity to do a tedx talk in may.
This talk is absolutely correct, and designing the payload has been filled with so many lessons about failure and making that push for space exploration.
We all have our reasons to pursue this kind of venture. I'm glad we currently live in an age where space projects are possible for students. And I'm very optimistic about what new advances will be made in the future.
Elizabeth Gilbert is one of my favorites so far. She gave a talk about how to "survive" your first major success and not let the pressure of creativity cripple you.
there is a whole sub for datahoarders like you, it's called /r/datahoarder (surprise :)
Maybe this post might help you.
EDIT: I also found this link
I hope to be able to illustrate what's going on and why, and how antiviruses and firewalls are irrelevant in the big picture: what we really should be doing is to catch the criminals and put them behind bars.
TED invited me. However, I attended TED 2009 and then discussed the possibility of speaking with Chris Anderson
Bonnie Bassler is a talking gem. If you can equate bacteria replicating to a point then "turning on" and then imagining mankind replicating/connecting to the internet to a point then "turning on" then the future looks 'bright' --> Singularity (metaphorically) here we come.
Have you read his research methodologies?
Here's a google scholar search.
Here's the paper his speech is largely based off of, it's free.
His simplification of terms is for an audience. I doubt he'd have time to fully dissect his research to an audience that isn't specialized in his field. The other things you're reading into are largely non sequitur.
My favorite is TED talk would be Mike Rowe from the tv show Dirty Jobs, although I love the talk it, probably wouldn't perfectly suit your purpose.
Adam Savage's talk is very good too.
With technology like this and Google Glass we can make learning and practically anything in real life a game. People don't mind playing games usually and I believe that this is a way that we as people can be much more productive.
There's a ted talk that's like number 6 here on /r/ted that talks about how games can increase our lifespan by up to 10 years if we use them in every day life.
Jane McGonigal from that ted talk made the game Super Better which is an example of how gaming can help us.
So augmented reality + Jane McGonigal's gaming tech can be absolutely beneficial to us.
Haha. Cool. I thought I knew something. Nope :)
Also: geez, TED need to watch their branding. I can't be the first to be confused. TED-Ed is the 'animated lessons' brand. Too close to TEDed.
(I couldn't find TEDed. Perhaps you can post a link?)
@kennyreborn: sorry to hear that, but I just tried it out on my machine which is also a Mac OS X with opera v11.01 and everything seems to work for me.
Are you using the following method to run userscripts?
She was going by the number of responses she got to various profiles.
She explains more in her first book Data, a Love Story.
Read the book from Chris Anderson. It might answer your questions. https://www.amazon.com/TED-Talks-Official-Public-Speaking/dp/1328710289/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=how+to+give+a+ted+talk&qid=1575994930&sr=8-3
Add to that <em>The Lucifer Effect</em> and you have my last few months reading list.
These are some of the most important books I've ever read.
The Second Machine Age, by Erik Brynjollfsson and Andrew McKee.
Explains everything about this jobless recovery, the real nature of the coming time of plenty, and what we might want to do to avoid revolution. Goes deep into impacts of AI and automation.
Why Everyone (Else) is a Hypocrite: Evolution and the Modular Mind totally changed the way I see myself and others, and our interactions with one another. It's not a hard or particularly long read (the Kindle version is something like 272 pages and the last 70-ish are citations so it's about 200 pages of actual reading) and it's one of those books that I think EVERYONE needs to read, even if you have zero interest in psychology or biology, because it will dramatically change the way you view your life.
This is a really great idea.
Last year I read "Moonwalking with Einstein", in one of the chapters they were talking about how time seems to pass so fast nowadays, unlike our parents and older people used to perceive time before all the smartphones and such, and one of the theories discussed that I really liked was the idea of doing something out of the ordinary, get out of the routine once in a while in order to retain more memory (for example if you travel, you are going to remember the trip, but you are also retaining whatever happened days before and days after) and by doing these 1 second a day moments I guess it's the best way to retain every little bit of your past, developing more memories and when remembering the past your brain will perceive all those years as really long years hence time seems to have passed slower
This talk is a brief summary of principles laid out in the wonderfully insightful and potentially life altering "The Anatomy of Peace" and other publications by the Arbinger Institute
