List of TED talks

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is an annual, invitation-only conference devoted to "ideas worth spreading". TED is famous for its lectures, known as TED Talks, which originally focused on technology, entertainment and design, but have now expanded in scope to a broad set of topics including science, arts, politics, education, culture, business, global issues, technology and development. Speakers have included such people as former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Nobel laureates James D. Watson, Jane Goodall, and Al Gore, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, and Billy Graham.

<a dojoType="form:ShareThis" reqEntity="talks" entityId="591" ...

That entity is the talk number, and you can plug in into this URL:

There is a Google Spreadsheet with a list of all TED talks, their duration, date of release, and short summary.
