TEDxZurich - Sebastian Wernicke - 1000 TED Talks in 8 minutes

There are over 1000 talks to watch on TED.com. Watching all of these 'Ideas Worth Spreading' would take several weeks, not to mention the damage to the economy. Inspired by none other than Ernest Hemingway and equipped with a budget of under $100, Sebastian Wernicke found a better way -- or at least a shorter one...

Sebastian Wernicke, Management Consultant at Oliver Wyman
"Currently an Engagement Manager at Oliver Wyman, Sebastian Wernicke originally studied bioinformatics at Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena. During his time in academia, he devised an algorithm for analyzing biological networks that now aids researchers in dealing with their innate complexity. Before his career in statistics began, Wernicke worked stints as both a paramedic and successful short animated filmmaker. He's also the author of the TEDPad app, an irreverent tool for creating an infinite number of "amazing and really bad and mostly completely meaningless talks."
Web: TED speakers: Sebastian Wernicke

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
