How to Sound Smart in Your TED Talk

(Video Link)

Will Stephen is a comedian with the Upright Citizens Brigade and a writer who has published with the New Yorker, New York Magazine, and CollegeHumor.

Will Stephen is smart. You can tell because he's delivering a TED Talk. Only smart people get to deliver TED Talks. And, more importantly, only smart people watch and--if at all possible--attend TED Talks in person.

So if you cannot attend a TED Talk yourself, then make sure that you are seen in public watching a recording of one. Or just link to a TED Talk on social media and tell people how meaningful it was to you.

This particular TED Talk would be a good pick. It will prepare you to deliver your own TED Talk, as Stephen explains in detail how to enunciate, gesticulate, and obfuscate in ways that will make you appear intelligent to people who like to watch TED Talks. You know--smart people like you.

Just to be clear... TEDTalks are given, watched and attended by people who THINK they are smart (on the whole...)

I have seen/heard more nonsensical crap from TEDTalks than I care to think about, not to say that they are all self aggrandizing twits, but a lot.

So, just say no to TEDTalks!
