TedTalks On Algorithmic Trading

TedTalks usually offer great speakers who bring material that isn't always on our minds.  In July of 2011, Kevin Slavin of Area/Code (see here) offered a simple and dynamic presentation on Algorithms in general, though the talk was skewed toward Wall Street.  This practice was supposed to be wiped out by the SEC but I think we all know how useless and pathetic lawyers are when it comes to regulating mathematicians, physicists and just plain crazy people.
