1. Erin McKean redefines the dictionary. A lecture on dictionaries? How fascinating does that sound? Really, it's fun and thought-provoking.
2. Steven Johnson - where good ideas come from. Apparently, they come from coffeehouses.
3. Charlie Todd on shared experience of absurdity. Funny how talking about funny things is funny.
4. Any of the videos by Ken Robinson, but this one is probably my favorite. They're all about education and the need for personalized education with an emphasis on creativity and passion in learning.
5. Patrick Awuah on educating leaders. It's essentially a defense of a liberal arts education. He gets a little rambly, but it's worth it.
6. Kathryn Schulz on being wrong. It turns out that being wrong makes for much better stories than being right.
7. The antidote to apathy. Why don't people get involved? Why don't we change the world?
8. The power of vulnerability. I know it sounds a little hippy-dippy, but Brene Brown is quite eloquent as she talks about connection, shame, compassion, and of course vulnerability.
