Doing a TED Talk: The Full Story

Imagine being asked to speak at TED. Not the independent TEDx conferences, but as Tim Urban explains

The thing I was asked to speak at was the big Vancouver one. I say this not only to brag, but also to explain why this whole thing had me freaking out so much. The same thing that made it extra extra scary also made it extra extra not turn-downable.

So I accepted.

What follows is the very scary yet utterly compelling story of how Tim prepared and delivered his session.  Really great reading, and some super advice on what you should do, and probably will fail to do, next time you present at an event…
