The TEDx Glasgow talks are online!

After a memorable event this year, we're excited that the TEDx Glasgow 2016 talks are now online for all to see and we can't recommend them highly enough. Take a look here. Of course, we're an IT company, so we're particularly drawn to James Lyne's rib-tickler/horror story, so it's listed below too!

TED, thanks to the wonders of the internet, has become a global phenomenon.

By now most of you will have heard of TED; the non-profit organisation with nearly 2 billion views of their motivational and inspiring videos on YouTube. The idea of TED is to share “ideas worth spreading”, and this is done providing a platform to those who wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to share these ideas. The result is a fascinating collection of experts, entertainers and enthusiasts coming together for over 30 years at events in cities across the globe.
