The first-ever TED event took place in 1984, introducing to the audience the compact disk, 3D graphics from Lucasfilm, and the e-book. The best TED talks don’t just bring up great ideas or excellent perspectives – they bring the best entertainment, the best designs for our future, and of course some of the best ideas we as humans can offer.

This is the TEDxWinterPark’s pick – Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes, the voice behind many TV series such as; Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away With Murder. “When I am hard at work, when I am deep in it, there is no other feeling,” she says. The hum. That is what she calls this feeling. The hum is a drug, the hum is music, the hum is God’s whisper in her ear. How do you hear the “yes”!


Yes, from the man who runs the show. He names these best ted talks that have stuck with him over the years.

Physicist giving an argument about the power of knowledge


Clay Shirky

Nancy Etcoff
