Secretmonger Frank Warren's TED talk is 11 minutes well spent

Posted by Rob Alderson,

What do all of us have, few of us share and some handle better than others? Yes, that’s right germs. But also secrets and that universal appeal helps explain the stratospheric popularity of Frank Warren’s PostSecret blog, where he invites people to submit their deepest darkest pearlers anonymously. He’s received hundreds of thousands of them to date ranging from the whimsical to the life-altering. As with the best examples of this kind of project it builds up to something much bigger than the sum of its parts – in this instance a fascinating study of people, their relationships and the ways in which they construct their own realities.

Yesterday Frank’s recent TED talk was posted online and it’s a really interesting 11 minutes sure to feed fans’ addiction and win over newcomers.
