Celeste just turned me on to TED — or Technology, Entertainment, Design; on their website, this organization offers videos of more than 200 lectures by VIPs from a wide swath of industries and arts.
Here’s a sampling of talks by writers:
– Dave Eggers describes his experience working with 826 Valencia, encouraging creative people everywhere to get involved with public schools.
– Amy Tan explores “where creativity is hiding.”
– Isabel Allende discusses passion, creativity, and definitions of feminism.
– Elizabeth Gilbert gives a lecture on “genius” and creativity.
