Bill Gates’ favorite TED talks

TED is a forum for “ideas worth spreading”. Having started in 1994 and now featuring two annual conferences, TED (originally Technology, Entertainment and Design) is an inspiring resource for those wishing to see the world become a better place.

Bill Gates, co-founder and for many years head of Microsoft, now heads up the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with his wife Melinda.  They are investing their fortune in combatting health, education, poverty and development problems worldwide.

Bill was recently asked to nominate his favourite TED talks.  Reportedly he said “there are too many to pick, really.”  Anyway, he has picked 13, which you can view here.  Having watched the first three, I feel I have stumbled onto a truly inspirational collection.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I currently am.
