I heard about TED, it stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, on the net@night podcast with Amber and Leo. After watching the first three that came down the intertubes I must say I really enjoyed them. They are just short 18 minute talks given by fascinating people who have done extraordinary things in their lives.

Really inspirational stuff.

Check out the TED web-site or the TEDTalks (video) page in iTunes. Ideal for watching on the Apple TV.
