How to Start a Movement, TED TALK – Derek Sivers (2010) Video

Wanna see something really frickin', wild n' crazy funny? Check out this absolutely looney, off the wall tho really funny comedy, learning video.  

It's all about leaders, followers, human behavior, the herd mentality, the fear of being left out, belonging and being part of the cool crowd.

And it all takes place in under 3 minutes ... 


This is the shortest, most hilarious Ted Talk video by Derek Sivers on "How to Start a Movement", clocking in at a mere 2:58.  

Who is Derek Sivers you ask?  Derek Sivers is best known for being the founder and former president of CD Baby, an online CD store for independent musicians. 

He became an entrepreneur by accident in 1998 when he started selling CDs on his website, CD Baby and it quickly caught on with his friends. 

It went on to become the largest seller of independent music online, with $100M in sales for 150,000 musicians

Now, Sivers is the founder of MuckWork, which aims to lessen the burdens of creative people by matching them with assistants.  (Note: Nearly half of the video is the opening and are ads that accompanied older TED Talks.

This video is guaranteed to make you laugh with all the wild and crazy stuff going on in it along with Derek's play by play commentary and accurate, common sense explanations.  

You can tell that Derek is extremely relaxed and not even remotely close to being nervous, getting a real kick out of giving his Ted Talk. He's just having a lot of fun on stage sharing his story with others.
