The internet is a powerful tool indeed. It is capable of wasting the precious few hours that you had set aside to do that assignment that is due tomorrow. Alternatively, it is capable of mobilising opinions and effecting change.

A preview of the top talks for the day on TED.com.

TED.com and the British Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts (RSA) most definitely do their bit to enlighten the internet populace. They share captivating and interesting videos of industry leaders sharing their two-cents. Definitely worth devoting some of that hour(s) of procrastination to.
