One of my frustrations with social media outlets like twitter is that they seem to exclude those who do not have pages or those that do not feel it is valuable use of their time for them to grow their twitter or youtube account. That is why I like to look at Ted Talks for inspiration as a teacher and incite on how to improve as a professional. One of my favorite Ted Talks is by Eduardo Saenz De Cabezon who I could not find any youtube pages for, but is a fine math professional! His Ted Talk is called Math is Forever.
