App of the Week

If you are a curious person with a love of quirky learning TED might be just what you are looking for.  Originally conceived in 1984 as a conference that would bridge Technology, Entertainment and Design, TED with its Ideas Worth Spreading slogan entered the online world in 1997.  Experts and inspirational speakers are invited to the stage to give the best 20 minute speech of their life on any subject.  New, original ideas are pitched to an audience on everything from food to office management.
Past speakers have included Jamie Oliver on why kids need to be educated about food through to Lesley Hazleton on Reading the Koran.  Speeches are accessible via YouTube and TED online or the TED iPhone app and might just make up for all the classes you slept through at school.  An inspiring model that all can learn from as to how to make the world a better place.


  1. Brilliant idea of gathering positive news. Can you keep an eye on some financial news too?

  2. The questioner knows more than the answerer I'm sure! Would be happy to if I knew which sources to pull from. Were you after Islamic banking news?
