I'm curious why she didn't say Brian's name. Also noticed she didn't swear!

She said no one names (except the names of her bands).
I wondered if it wasn't a TED guideline.
(Might be speaker guidelines on the TED web sight.)

It's possible that no swearing is a TED guideline.
But my guess is that she decided to concentrate on just the one idea:
"The Art of Asking"
which has nothing to do with swearing.

Other thoughts?

She didn't specifically name her college or record label, either, but snuck in the name of the milk crate and hat supplier. I couldn't really find anything on the site as far as official regulations, but Charles Tsai mentions the "TED Commandments" (http://www.charlestsai.com/2010/11/how-to-prepare-your-tedx-talks/):

Quote
author=Charles Tsai
  • Thou Shalt Not Simply Trot Out thy Usual Shtick.
  • Thou Shalt Dream a Great Dream, or Show Forth a Wondrous New Thing, Or Share Something Thou Hast Never Shared Before.
  • Thou Shalt Reveal thy Curiosity and Thy Passion.
  • Thou Shalt Tell a Story.
  • Thou Shalt Freely Comment on the Utterances of Other Speakers for the Sake of Blessed Connection and Exquisite Controversy.
  • Thou Shalt Not Flaunt thine Ego. Be Thou Vulnerable. Speak of thy Failure as well as thy Success.
  • Thou Shalt Not Sell from the Stage: Neither thy Company, thy Goods, thy Writings, nor thy Desperate need for Funding; Lest Thou be Cast Aside into Outer Darkness.
  • Thou Shalt Remember all the while: Laughter is Good.
  • Thou Shalt Not Read thy Speech.
  • Thou Shalt Not Steal the Time of Them that Follow Thee.

I'm guessing name dropping would be considered something under the umbrella of number 7, maybe?

Either way, I have the same view on the lack of name dropping as I do swearing; had she cursed, the message would not be able to spread as far and wide (sad, but true) and it also might have minimized or weakened the message. Whether it was a conscious choice or not, or even a "commandment," it was a wise one.

And for that, I am eternally grateful. :-)

Is it cheeky for me to post a link to by most recent blog discussing the TED talk? It was just retweeted by Amanda, so I thought I'd put it here as well, if anyone is interested. I tackle her talk from a creative industry/publishing specific point of view, but it's relevant for all I'd say. (it's long though, just a heads up)
