John Lloyd inventories the invisible – TED Talks

A short TED Talk from 2009, on what we think we see, but don’t! As usual, don’t forget you can choose subtitles in several languages from the player window.

Nature’s mysteries meet tack-sharp wit in this hilarious, 10-minute mix of quips and fun lessons, as comedian, writer and TV man John Lloyd plucks at the substance of several things not seen.

Strange Random Invisibility Quote:

“In teaching you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.” – Jacques Barzun (French Educator, b.1907)

    Thanks so much for sharing John Lloyd’s wonderful TED talk and thanks for being a part of the small core who are educating the world about such talk sites! My passion led me to create videotalks.org — a robust site linking to dozens of TED-like sites which I’m sure many of your readers will enjoy. Please continue to mention TED talks and thanks for helping to spread the word. Jim Melfi

      Hi Jim,

      Many thanks for taking the time to comment on the post!

      We like TED for a number of reasons – apart from the obvious quality and variety of talks, they have subtitles (important for many of our students!) and for the more business-oriented classes, they are an interesting way to show and develop presentation skills. So we like to add a new video every couple of weeks or so and of course, mention TED as much as possible to our clients.

      I have added your site to our blogroll and think it will be a great resource. I’ll also add a post to tell our readers more about it and will let you know when it’s done.

      Thanks again and all the best from Barcelona!
