No, it's not me. Sorry to disappoint.
It's some of the lectures delivered (http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=TEDtalksDirector)at the annual Technology, Entertainment, Design conference.

I thought you'd bought yourself one of the CNN hologram faces!

Those TED talks are great, I've seen many of those videos over the last year or so.

On a similar theme is the Long Now Foundation (http://longnow.org/), which (among other things) has monthly talks by various notables, available for free as mp3's. Scroll down and click on "All seminar audio is available for Download & Podcast" to listen.

My favorite Ted Talks presentation is one of Jonathan Harris's: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/jonathan_harris_collects_stories.html
I think he's a genius, because he thinks differently. He sees connections. His wefeelfine.org program is an amazing mixture of narrative and number. So many stories....
