Ideas worth spreading


TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) is a global set of conferences formed to spread ideas. Talks are generally limited to 18 minutes by scientists, educators, industrialists, physicians, surgeons, designers and people with brilliant new ideas. There are currently over 1,000 talks on the TED site.

TED was founded in 1984 and the annual Monterey Conference began in 1990. In addition numerous other conferences are held throughout the world and on specific subjects.
