TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) is a growing collection of brief recorded talks on a wide range of topics. The speakers are leading figures chosen for their ability to express ideas clearly and succinctly. We will watch and discuss three or four related TED talks each week. Topics will include Happiness, Lying, Humor, and TED all-stars Malcolm Gladwell and Yuval Noah Harari.
