Ideas worth spreading

I absolutely love this website, and of all the things I've seen on the internet I'd say probably more than half of the most amazing / inspirational / great things have been from this website alone. Spending more time on it recently I basically can't get enough of what people have to say.
One of my lifelong dreams is to give a talk at TED, sounds super cheesy but I just hope that one day I will have achieved something significant enough that it will warrant the use of this sort of stage/forum.

The two most recent I've seen and some really good ones:

A neuroscientist has a stroke and describes her experience of the stroke with respect to the neurological interactions of the human brain.

A guy discusses the incredible power and capability of silk and how it can change our world in many ways.

http://www.ted.com/talks/fiorenzo_omene … uture.html

I'm always hunting for interesting new videos to see on this site, but there are so many good ones I can't possibly catch them all. Anyone who has favourites or new ones they stumble across please share, I'm pretty much down to watch good TED talks anytime anywhere.

*edit*
Another interesting one (old one), Malcolm Gladwell talking about spaghetti sauce and revolutionizing the marketing world. Very interesting.

Another great one - let your kids do dangerous shit.

I love this site.
