Ted talks

Next up, if you're passionate about technology, entertainment and design, there's a place on the web for you to get your fill of information. You want to be talking to TED.com.

The website is based on a series of annual conferences where the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers are challenged to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. The website offers up more than 200 of the best talks from the conferences, free for you to enjoy.

Soak up the atmosphere as Deborah Gordon enthuses about ants , Craig Venter vents about the creation of synthetic life , and then why not take a little time out and enjoy the Raspyni Brothers joking around and juggling with beanbags ?

I really like the way this site navigates, as the thumbnail sections slide out and react to your mouse pointers presence. With the navigation panel clearly displayed on the left it's a breeze to get about. The only thing you'll be stuck with is how to find enough time in your day to get your fill.
