Top 10 TEDTalks


The Technology Entertainment Design Conference has been a great source for interesting presentations and in 2006 they started publishing their talks online. This week they published a list of the top 10 most popular talks. There are quite a few tech related ones and we’ve covered some of this work before: [Jeff Han]‘s multitouch demos, [Johnny Lee]‘s Wiimote hacking, [Blaise Aguera y Arcas] demoing a zoomable interface, and finally for a bit of fun [Arthur Benjamin]‘s Mathemagic.

  1. I *really* don’t get how the Wiimote-hacks-guy made it to that most elitist conference (or more like theater, with cool people telling rich people about their work, to make rich people make feel a little cool) — it’s really not a hack, since the wiimote was just supposed to track points, and he, well, let’s it track points, big deal. It’s of even lower value than Jeff Hans talk, at least that one started the hype (again), but the demos that gave the talk its coolness were all made by his students while he claimed the pride…
    Compare these talks to the one by the Microsoft Research guy or the robot-arm-protesis guy…
