TED Talks posted their first six videos in 2006 and by 2012 they had reached a billion views. They continue to be viewed at a rate of 17 new views per second. They say this means, “That people want to learn. That people want be inspired. That people are hungry for ideas, and that there’s a bubbling desire not to let the unfortunate truths of our world remain the status quo, but to look for creative solutions.”
What can we learn from some of the most popular TED talks? Why are these specific ones so popular? What do they teach us about what people are searching for? How does faith factor in?
Join us to view TED talks that inspire, inform, and call us to action and to consider how answers to the questions above provide insights for our daily lives and out reach into our community. Kathie Leighton facilitates this discussion on Sundays, January 5, 12, and 19, at 9:45 am in Creighton Hall.
