This Week’s TED Talks on Twitter

Twitter Tuesday

We’re always excited to learn about new things happening in the world, which is why we’re such big fans of TEDTalks. If you haven’t checked out TED, the site shows video lecture on all sorts of topics, from entrepreneurship to genetics, to psychology, to education, and more.

Small business owners, entrepreneurs, professionals, educators and others can benefit from tuning in to what the world’s experts have to say. It can be hard to keep track of what’s new on TED, so it’s worthwhile to follow @Tedtalks on Twitter. You never know what (or who!) you’ll find.

Edith Widder, an oceanographer and inventor, shares how her team was able to get the elusive giant squid on film in “How we found the giant squid.”

Shane Koyczan, a poet, performs his poem “To This Day,” which is a powerful story about bullying and growing up as a kid who is different.

Amanda Palmer, an artist and musician whose band crowdsourced their funding after a decision to leave their label, describes how powerful it can be to ask for what you need in “The art of asking”

Bruce Maisonnier works at Aldebaran Robotics and choreographs dances for little robots called Naos. Watch these striking, inspiring, and human-like robots and listen to Maisonner’s insights in “Dance, tiny robots!”

Michael Dickinson, a professor of biology at the University of Washington, has been nicknamed “fly guy” for his work with drosophila, better known as the fruit fly. Here he gives a talk on “How a fly flies”
