(via James Burke) Errr…. no, I have not been invited to speak at TED… yet 😉
Check out this great TED Talk generator. Someone has taken 525 published TED talks and created a random generator with it. Here is my “good” presentation. The platitudes almost make sense:
I’ll give you a couple of examples. You. will see this idea stretching everyone’s spark the imagination. (Applause.) Thank you very much. I want to use this data to gain insight, but not make decisions. (Applause.) Thank you very much. I’m now going to show you we can get our brain to change the same way that it did when you were a kid. Then happiness is a piece of art. You don’t have to have three or four cups of coffee that you won’t like if you look at how it was made. That would be like French people who get very old. And then all of a sudden, we realize that a mirror will not get something bad fixed et cetera, et cetera. It’s therefore much better to create a choice to believe health data of the United States or not. You know, in the middle of voyages, there are often beautiful places that you miss. I would like to compare this to a patient who really made me want to reconsider my profession et cetera, et cetera.
You can also create “bad” talks. I like the bad better to be honest:
Of course, economics are going to play a major role here, too. So maybe I don’t have to know more about the issue. I just need to make sure that there’s enough oxygen – and I have got all the answers on how to do that. Specifically, what I am thinking of is a computer at the front page of the New York Times. I don’t think this will be as relevant as an aircraft can easily fly upside down. Earlier, completing my MBA in the United States required you to use your feet walking around the largest cities in the United States. I want to relate this to my project where there isn’t a single aspect I don’t understand. Naturally, this required building things I don’t understand. Keep in mind though that this is not necessarily a problem – especially for families. Therefore, we’re going to make sure that we include all the boys and girls who live in the 100 largest cities. In the United States, we have seen an unprecedented design which is going to make sure that we succeed.
