How to design the ultimate TED talk...or nearly so



Here's a fun video from TED.com that compiles web statistics and comments rating videos of TED talks to come up with a tongue-in-cheek set of guidelines for emulating the most popular and highly rated talks, with tips and quips on everything from popular topics and themes, words to use or avoid, colors, sources to cite (not the New York Times, as it turns out), visuals and how to use them, timing and more.  Enjoy this light-hearted look at public speaking that hits home on many issues.
