Learn how to succeed in 3 minute presentation


I have seen many motivational presentations, but this one is really short and contains all the juice of collected stories of successful people. It is a presentation by Richard St. John, who is author of Stupid, Ugly, Unlucky and RICH: What really leads to success -- and it's not smarts, looks, or luck. He's also founder of the communications agency, The St John Group.

You can watch video presentation at www.ted.com . Here is the one of the main thing that lead to success is love. If you love what you do then , there is no other way but success at the end.
There are some other presentations you may like about innovations, creativity, education and future aspects for development and design. Also some of them are really funny.
I found Ted thought Mena's Corner, where she talks about how blogs are used and why people like using it.
By the way those 3 minutes that I spend watching this presentation where most valuable minutes in my life.

And idea is to create controlling that computer monitor with your thoughts or similar easy way.

Web 2.0 Security Scares by ZDNet's Richard MacManus -- For web-based businesses like Google and MySpace, AJAX flings open the door to new malware propagation methods few things are more scary than malicious attacks on the code of your websites or apps. And in this web 2.0 era, new threats have emerged that specifically target Ajax websites. Web security firm Finjan recently released a report [...]
And in there are more and more web sites offering new and cool looking features and offering to integrate say slide show or video content or blog , myspace template to your account by requesting your login details. And they definitely assure you that your login details will not be stored or used in any other way. Some of these web sites may be reliable like slide.com or others but by offering such option makes users to think that it is popular way for integrating content and there is nothing to worry. Which will make them to neglect this threat on other websites that they don't know and may be real threat for them.
