Maria Popova

At the risk of sounding like a gushing teen who reads Tiger Beat (whoa, how much did I just date myself there?!)…

Maria Popova, you’re my idol. It tickles me to no end that she refers to herself as an “interestingness curator”. Since discovering her blog Brain Pickings, her reviews of numerous books and sites and more have led me to some delightful finds.  I also admire the way she thinks, approaches ideas – she took something that is a great resource, the TED talks, and thoughtfully considered overlap and correlations and such and created a new resource highlighting connections and themes that can be observed across multiple speakers.  It’s called TEDify.  It’s inspiring.

Usually I just get to enjoy her writing, but here she is speaking on all of this (video below, transcript w/ images and links here).
