If you haven’t heard about it, you should, which is why I’m just another voice spreading ‘ideas worth spreading’.
I don’t know the history or too much of the background, but TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, and it is basically a conference of amazing presentations regarding a wide variety of topics, some from famous people, some from everyday people who have a unique story to tell. The presentations are video recorded and shown on their website for free.
There are two major events, the one in the US just ocurred in Long Beach CA with some interesting stuff from Bill Gates, and the TED Global conference in London in July.
I’m sure they’d be an incredible event to attend, but with all the video, you’re almost there.
You now have a lot of video to watch. (Don’t worry, many presentations are short. Just start with a quick one.)

I love TEDtalks. I’ve been watching since they first posted the videos to the web. Lots of great ideas from some of the world’s brightest thinkers.
Thanks Greg. If you’ve seen them all, you’re way ahead of me. I still have a lot of viewing to do. But that’s just more ideas to spread. Probably a lot of blog material in there.
