  • There's currently over 1000 Ted talks on the Ted website.

  • Andi, I guess many off, you hear?

  • Think that this is quite fantastic except for me.

  • I don't agree with this.

  • I think we have a situation here because if you think about it, 1000 Ted talks.

  • That's over 1000 ideas worth spreading.

  • How on earth are you going to spread 1000 ideas?

  • Even if you just try to get all of those ideas into your head by watching all those 1000 Ted videos, it would actually currently take you over 250 hours to do so on.

  • I did a little calculation off this.

  • The damage to the economy for each one who does this is around $15,000.

  • So, having seen this danger to the economy, I thought, we need to find a solution to this problem.

  • Here's my approach to it all.

  • If you look at the current situation, you have 1000 Ted talks.

  • Each of those Ted talks has an average length off about 2000 and 300 words.

  • Now take this together and you end up with 2.3 million words of Ted talks, which is about three Bibles.

  • Birth of content The obvious question here is.

  • Does a Ted talk really need 2000 and 300 words?

  • Isn't there something shorter?

  • I mean, if you have an idea worth spreading, surely you can put it into something shorter than 2300 words.

  • The only question is, how short can you get?

  • What's the minimum amount of words you would need to do a ted talk?

  • While I was pondering this question, I came across this urban legend about Ernest Hemingway, who allegedly said that these six words here for sale baby shoes never worn where the best novel he had ever written.

  • And I also encountered a project called Six Word Memoirs, where people were even asked to take your whole life.

  • And please sum this up into six words such as these here found true love, married someone else or living in existential vacuum.

  • It sucks like that.

  • So if a novel can be put into six words on Ah whole memoir can be put into six words, you don't need more than six words for Ted talk.

  • We could have been done by lunch here.

  • I mean, and if you did this for all 1000 Ted talks you will get from 2.3 million words down to 6000.

  • So I thought this was quite worthwhile.

  • So I started asking all my friends, please take your favorite Ted talk and put that into six words.

  • So here are some of the results that I received.

  • I think they're quite nice.

  • For example, Dan Pink's talk of motivation, which is pretty good if you haven't seen it.

  • Drop carrot drop stick.

  • Bring meaning.

  • It's what he's basically talking about in those 18.5 minutes.

  • Or some even included references to the speakers, such as Nathan Myhrvold's speaking style or the one off Tim Ferriss, which might be considered a bit strenuous at times.

  • The challenge here is if I try to systematically do this, I would probably end up with a lot of summaries, but not with many friends in the end.

  • So I had to find a different method I had, preferably involving total strangers on.

  • Luckily, there's a website for that called Mechanical Turk, which is a website where you can post tasks that you don't want to do yourself, such as police.

  • Summarize this text for me and six words on.

  • I didn't allow any low cost countries to work on this, but I found out I could get a six word summary for just 10 cents, which I think is a pretty good price even then.

  • Unfortunately, it's not possible to summarize each Ted talk individually, because if you do the math, you know you have 1000 Ted talks, you pay 10 cents each.

  • You have to do more than one summary for each of those talks because some of them will probably or are really bad.

  • So I would end up paying hundreds of dollars.

  • So I thought of a different way by thinking, Well, that talks revolve around certain themes.

  • So what if I don't let people summarize individual Ted talks to six words, but give them 10 Ted talks at the same time and say, Please do a six word summary for that one.

  • I would cut my costs by 90% So for $60 I could summarize 1000 Ted talks into just 600 summaries, which would actually be quite nice.

  • Now, some of you might actually right now be thinking it's downright crazy to have 10 Ted talks summarized into just six words.

  • But it's actually not because there's an example by statistics Professor Hans Rosling.

  • I guess many of you have seen one or more of his talks.

  • He's got eight talks online, and those eight talks can basically be summed up into just four words, because that's all he's basically showing us.

  • Our intuition is really bad, always proves us wrong.

  • So people on the Internet some didn't do so well.

  • I mean, when I asked them to summarize the 10 Ted talks at the same time, some took the easy route out.

  • You know, they just had some general comment, others and there were others.

  • And I found this quite cheeky.

  • They used their six words to talk back to me and asked me if I'd been too much on Google lately.

  • On finally, also, I did never understood this.

  • You know, some people, really they came up with their own word in off the truth.

  • I mean, I don't know any Ted talk that kind of contains this, but well, in the end, however, and this is really amazing for each of those 10 test or clusters that I submitted, I actually received meaningful summaries here.

  • Some of my favorites, for example, for the Ted talks around food.

  • Someone summed this up into food shaping body, brains and environment, which I think is pretty good or happiness, striving toward happiness, moving toward unhappiness.

  • So here I waas.

  • I had started out with 1000 Ted talks, and I had 606 word summaries for those.

  • Actually, it sounded nice in the beginning, but when you look at 600 summaries, it's quite a lot.

  • It's it's a huge list.

  • So I thought I probably have to take this one step further here on kind of create summaries of the summaries, and this is exactly what I did.

  • So I took the 600 summaries that I had put them into nine groups, according to the ratings that the talks had originally received on ted dot com and asked people to do summaries of those again.

  • There were some misunderstandings.

  • For example, when I had a cluster of all the beautiful talks, someone thought I was just trying to find the ultimate pickup line here.

  • But in the end, amazingly again, people were able to do it.

  • For example, all the courageous Ted talks people dying or people suffering.

  • There was also one with easy solutions around or the recipe for the ultimate jaw dropping Ted talk flicker photos of intergalactic classical composer.

  • I mean, that's the essence of it all.

  • Now I had my nine groups, but I mean, it's already quite a reduction.

  • But of course, no, once you're that far, you're not really satisfied.

  • I mean, I wanted to go all the way all the way down the distillery.

  • You know, starting out with 1000 Ted talks.

  • I wanted to have 1000 Ted talks summarized into just six words, which would be a 99.9997% reduction in content.

  • And I would only pay $99.50 so stay even below $100 for it.

  • So I had 50 overall summaries done this time.

  • I paid 25 cents because I thought the task was a bit harder on.

  • Unfortunately, when I first received the answers and here you see six of the answers that was a bit disappointed because I think you'll agree they all summarize some aspect of Ted by to me, that kind of felt felt a bit bland or they just had a certain aspect of Ted in them.

  • So I was almost ready to give up when one night I played around with these sentences and found out that there's actually a beautiful solution in here.

  • So here it is.

  • A crowd sourced.

  • Six word summary off 1000 Ted talks at the value of $99.50.

  • Why the worry?

  • I'd rather wonder.

  • Thank you very much.

There's currently over 1000 Ted talks on the Ted website.
