TED: Ideas worth spreading

From architects to buddhist monks, from superfamous to the average Joe, at TED.com you can watch talks by inspirational people from all walks of life. Here's a couple examples of what you can stumble upon.

William Kamkwamba, inventor

Then 14-year-old William from Malawi read a book about building a windmill and built one from scrap materials to generate electricity to his house! Now he's planning to build a bigger and a better one to power the whole village.

Milton Glaser, graphic designer

The designer of many iconic images, including 'I [heart] NY', Milton Glaser runs the audience through his creative process. It's worth visiting his poster collection too.
