Happy Holidays

Wishing Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! Click on this funny little flash animation that will put a smile on your face. It's creatively based on a Drifters' song from the 50's, White Christmas.

Makes you wanna dive into the snow, if you happen to live in the tropics. Ho ho ho...

And since it's almost the year of 2008, let's take a look at 2007 in review...

TED: Ideas worth spreading

Everyday I have a need to satisfy my insatiable thirst for new knowledge. I cannot imagine how my days would be like without great resources such as Wikipedia and How Stuff Works . I still remember the days when my father used to own racks of Britannica Encyclopedias, which were really cool to have but they were collecting dust most of the time.

If you happen to always look for new ideas to learn from the brightest of minds, then watching TED must be in your daily to-do-list. TED is an annual conference that brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives. Speakers range from Amazon.com Founder, Jeff Bezos, to Nobelaurates such as Al Gore. Be thankful to broadband internet, since instead of paying 3000 USD/seat for TED admissions, you can now enjoy video recordings of TED talks for FREE.

Below are some of the best TED talks:

Tony Robbins (Motivational Speaker)
Why we do what we do, and how we can do it better

Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com Co-Founder & CEO)
After the gold rush, there's innovation ahead

Seth Godin (Marketing Guru)
Sliced bread and other marketing delights

Personally, TED has greatly inspired my daily way of thinking personally and professionally.
I'm sure that you will be surprised, awed and touched by TED talks in some way. Look up your topic of interest at TED, watch and get inspired, then spread the ideas!

Thanks TED for being my source of inspiration.
