Video: Stanford Coach David Shaw Does “TED Talk”: Can Football Change The World?
If you’ve never heard of TED Talks, you’ve really been missing out. Professionals from around the world give talks to groups of people (they must be less than 20 minutes long), and TED records a video of the talk and puts it online. The idea is that great ideas spread around the world and everyone has access to incredible inspiration. According to the TED website, this is the goal:
“TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.”
Stanford head coach David Shaw recently did a TED talk and spoke about how the Stanford football program is trying to change the world with its exceptional combination of academics and athletics — it’s a pretty great talk, and I highly recommend watching it. You can check the video out below:
