My favorite speeches. I'll include a few debates and interviews. A lot will be Ted Talks.

The list is in order by how much I like the speech, not the person.

Ted Talks are in order of the release.

If you know of any great missing speech (not just TED Talks), please recommend it.

My favorite speeches by people not on listal
Creative Confidence
Why 30 is not the new 20
Your body language shapes who you are
No Boring Data (Population Growth)
How it feels to grow up in the closet
Rory Sutherland Life Lessons from an Ad Man and Sweat the Small Stuff
On being Wrong
Classical Music with Shining Eyes
The Surprising Science of Motivation
The Amazing Intelligence of Crows
I walk the Earth (a man begins a vow of silence, and has a very interesting journey)
The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives
Positive Psychology


Very Short Speeches :

Derek Sivers : Keep your goals to yourself, How to Start a Movement and Weird or Just Different
Try Something New for 30 days
Video Games :


7 Ways Video Games Engage The Brain
Wii Remote hacks
Peter Molyneux (the creator of Fable) : Milo, the virtual boy - A game that unfortunately won't be released.

I haven't included political speeches like the I Have a Dream speech.

Good, but not my favorites :

The World Needs all Kinds of Minds
A Stroke of Insight

This speech is kind of esoteric. Lies, damned lies and statistics (about TEDTalks)

If you want to look for Ted Talks I suggest using this spreadsheet about the most popular Ted Talks.
