20 Must-See Business TED Talks Every year, today’s greatest thinkers gather at various TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) conferences around the world. Their talks, which you can find on TED’s website, are often insightful, educational, and fascinating. As a TED junkie, I decided to compile 20 of the best business talks in the conference’s history. Each talk offers insights either into a business leader’s mind, or into concepts that will change the way you think about business and the economy. (If you have any favorites not included on this list, please mention them in the comments below.)

TeachingToSee "What an extraordinary film! It is simply exquisite, in its pacing, content, narrative arc, photography." Ric Grefé Executive Director, AIGA "A great story beautifully told." Incredibly Realistic Sculptures by Adam Beane Adam Beane is quite unique sculptor. Since beginning sculpting in 2002 he is known for dynamic compositions, action poses, nuanced drapery work and his ability to capture likenesses with expressions. For the work he uses CX5, a tremendously versatile material he developed which handles like clay when warm but is hard as plastic when cool.
Port Huron Statement of the Students for a Democratic Society, 1962 Courtesy Office of Sen. Tom Hayden. Introductory Note: This document represents the results of several months of writing and discussion among the membership, a draft paper, and revision by the Students for a Democratic Society national convention meeting in \cf2 Port Huron\cf0 , Michigan, June 11-15, 1962. It is represented as a document with which SDS officially identifies, but also as a living document open to change with our times and experiences. It is a beginning: in our own debate and education, in our dialogue with society.
The Creative License I am an author and creative director dividing my time between Los Angeles and New York. I am working on several projects with publishers and with clients while speaking at conferences and organizations here and in Europe. Before setting up this new bi-coastal life, I was Managing Director and Executive Creative Director of mcgarrybowen in New York. I helped build the agency, from its humble origins as a couple of dozen people sitting in a room looking at the phone and waiting for it to ring — to the global behemoth (1,000+ people, offices on three continents) it is today. We were named Ad Agency of the Year (twice by Ad Age and once by Ad Week which is apparently more picky) and I am proud to share in the credit for that. In our first ten years, we won a crazy number of accounts including Chase, Verizon, Chevron, Reebok, United, Kraft, Sears and Disney.
100 Websites To See Before You Die (Part 1) Here at Maximum PC, we've always done our fair share of website recommendation articles--including a couple of doozies from the past few years. And of course we're not the only ones who do this sort of article either; it's a proven popular format. But this year, we thought we'd mix things up a little bit. Rather than just focusing on what's services are popular, or which web apps will make you the most productive, we wanted to take a look at what's fun on the Internet.
Freedom Vaults : Guidelines for Saying No to Police Searches One of the main powers that law enforcement officers carry is the power to intimidate citizens into voluntarily giving up their rights. Police are trained to believe in their authority and trained to perform their interactions with private citizens with confidence. It is their job to deal with problems and they learn to manage uncomfortable situations through strength. Most people, when confronted by police get a mild panic reaction, become anxious, and try to do whatever they can to minimize the time spent with the officer. Because of the imbalance of power between citizen and officer, when a law enforcement officer makes a strongly worded request, most people consent without realizing that they are giving up constitutional protections against improper meddling by the State in the private affairs of citizens. A common situation is that of the traffic stop.
The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. Thousands of Plastic Figures Hold Up the Floor One of the most exciting contemporary artists of our time, Korean Do Ho Suh, created this large sculptural installation that doesn't look like much until you come closer. Glass plates rest on thousands of multicolored miniature plastic figures who are crowded together with their heads and arms turned skyward. Together, they are holding the weight of the individual visitor who steps onto the floor. Currently showing at Lehmann Maupin's pop-up gallery at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute (STPI), Floor is one of those installations that's wonderfully thought-provoking. The figures represent the diverse and anonymous masses of people who support and/or resist the symbolic floor.
