TED talks create a resource of information

TED talks are 'riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world' and are a valuable source of information on a huge range of subjects.

The lovely thing about TED talks is that you can dip in and out of videos knowing they can be watched in a short amount of time. The format is always the same and you can search a topic for a range of inspiring talks.

I often use it as a source of reseach for a particular topic - a bit like a quick 'instant expert' approach.

Watching people talk about their experiences/projects can be much more powerful than simply reading about it.

Krassimira's 'where to start, how to start' inspiration and James' ' Collections of Inspiration' very much relate to this idea.

A web entrepreneur focused TED resource could be very helpful for start-ups.

Louise great idea.
A directory of inspirational videos regarding startups and successful stories, such as the ones from HackFwd - Passion Meets Momentum, sounds great.

Welcome Louise, It would be interesting to see that in the concerting phase, this kind of ideas merge with others like
