TED takes on a new light and life on the iPad 2. Its iPad app made it one of the most pleasurable to watch a video and to learn about others' thought processes and ideas.
 
In some ways, entering the world of TED is like being in the community of Lunch. You've no clear idea what you'll find. If you are open to collective intelligence, you'll find something of great importance and use to expand and align your consciousness. Often, I subscribed to the idea that when one is ready, one will be presented the tools and knowledge that one needs to acquire in life. And to my delight, TED hastens that process with "teachers" from all walks of life.

 
So, what is so great about TED on the iPad? I'm specifcially adressing about TED on the iPad as it is the mode that most captivates my interest and also where I made it a point to return for future visits. That is of utmost importance since it is the process of learning taking place in dynamic proportions. Naturally, before I had the iPad I had visited TED on its website. But, a week or two later, I'd have forgotten all about it (hence, no return visit). The iPad delivers the talks effectively wherever I'm. Yes, initially we need the internet connection but the wonder of this particular app makes it a breeze to save my favorite talks on the iPad.
 
The quallity of videos is something I must applaud. Thanks to the iPad excellent hardware, videos are as great as watching HDTV! Sure, I could save a lot of tv programs but it's not as easy for me to take them to the hair salon, bathroom or the long flight many of us are confined in and totally bored on it. Having said that, the real quality of the talks depend on the speakers. As a whole, TED has many superb speakers with a fanfare of creativity and persuasion. That's what made it such an attractive package! Essentially, what collective and corraborative intelligence on TED does is basically a shift in paradigm!!!

Here are some of my favorites and uplifting videos from TED. Enjoy...
