…simply stated is, TED.
For those of you who haven’t met TED yet, let me introduce you. Ted is a nonprofit that was started in 1984 with the goal of sharing ideas and creating connections between people around Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TED’s motto: Ideas Worth Spreading.
Each year TED hosts 2 global conferences: on on the west coast and one in the UK. In 2007 TED launched its website, providing FREE global access to the shared content of the TED community, There are currently over 1,400 videos featuring presentations and performances by the more than 1,200 industry experts, leaders, and creators.

TED’s mission: Spreading ideas.
We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other. This site, launched April 2007, is an ever-evolving work in progress, and you’re an important part of it. Have an idea? We want to hear from you.
