There’s this awesome set of conferences that really gets my inner geek squealing, the TED conferences. The slogan for the conferences is “Ideas Worth Spreading,” it features a ton of speakers who will talk anywhere from 5 to 17 minutes. The topics vary, but all of them are innovative or at the very least thought provoking. They recently started this new thing–TED Ed–which features short lessons rather than talks.
I found this one about world building, and I thought you guys might find it interesting.
Typically I go about world building a little differently, but the author gives some good tips.
