1,000 of the World’s Greatest Minds in One Place

futurethink TEDTED started out as an annual conference in Monterey, California devoted to Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Though the organization’s focus has broadened over the years, the annual TED conference is still the main engine that drives TED’s success, bringing together 1000 of the world’s most remarkable people and creating a forum where world-changing ideas are born.

The conference kicked off this past week on February 27th, and runs through today, March 1st. As always, the conference’s 18-minute talks will be released slowly over the next few years. Some of this year’s notable speakers include former US Vice President and environmental activist Al Gore, novelist Amy Tan, “expert” John Hodgman (the PC in Apple’s notorious ad campaign), BBC Correspondent Matt Frei, author and scholar Nassim Nicholas Talib, spiritual guru Ravi Shankar, and designer Yves Behar.
