TED is a nonprofit that began in 1984 with the goal of bringing people together from three different groups: Technology, Entertainment and Design.  Today, it remains dedicated to “Ideas Worth Spreading” but it’s range has dramatically increased.

Last week, Mission Blue wrote a great post about “Ocean Wonders: 9 Inspired TED Talks on the World Beneath the Waves.”  The talks range from Sylvia Earle, the founder of Mission Blue, to sunfish, color-changing cuttlefish, and even the math of coral reefs.

The next time you’re in the mood to procrastinate, check out some of these great ocean-themed TED talks.

To put you in the mood, here’s a popular one featuring the color-changing cuttlefish and other “underwater astonishments.”   To see more, be sure to check out “Ocean Wonders.”
