Great TED talk by Larry Smith that talks about passion -- how many people fail even after they discover their passions. And why is that so? Because they don't act on their passion.

Making excuses to fail your passions does not help, and Larry Smith explains this in a voice that modulates all the time -- also notice his distinctly different body language and a subtle sense of humor.

Strolled to this video -- and this has got to be one the most informative and entertaining videos that I have seen. Great introduction to how 4:3 originated and how we moved on to super wide ratios before standardizing (at least to some extent) with 16:9. John Hess from FilmmakerIQ.com has created an amazing video that is a must-see!

Just got to see Guy Kawasaki presenting at TEDx Harker School -- not surprisingly, he has done an amazing job. The best part is how Guy talks -- he uses his voice in a way that does not make him sound arrogant -- rather he sounds so much humble. Yet, the content of his presentation does not seem to be related to humility. He talks about the 12 things he learned from Steve Jobs -- but sounding so approachable, human, and humble may have been the 13th trick he learned from Steve Jobs.

FF Chartwell is a different font type -- rather than show alphabets or numbers, or even dingbats, it creates simple charts. What's more -- FF Chartwell is an intelligent font that can create calculations based on your numbers and automatically create pie charts based on percentage values. It also creates other chart types, as explained in this video.

One of the most interesting talks I have heard in a long time comes from TED, one of my favorite sources of inspiring content.

In this talk, Simon Sinek explains why most mundane presentations (or almost anything) are geared towards answering the "what" questions. And then he goes on to explain that we must ask ourselves the "how" and "why" questions -- only them will we be convinced enough to spread the enthusiasm to others!

Learn more about Simon at this Start With Why site. Simon has also authored the best-selling book of the same name, Start With Why.

Love this video of how the Stockholm folks used iPads to create a novel presentation. Don't know how they made the bulb and the flower appear! :)

PowerPoint MVP Glenna Shaw found this excellent resource that explains how this "magic" was performed -- thank you, Glenna!

Here's a video of how the artists developed this presentation.

This is one of the presentations delivered during a Pecha Kucha event I attended in Hyderabad -- love the way the time was so well divided among the slides.
