TED is a non-pro t organization dedicated to the dissemination of ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks of 18 minutes or less. TED began in 1984 as a Confer- ence in which converged technology, entertainment and design, and today covers nearly all topics – from science to business to global problems – in more than 100 languages. As both, independently run TEDx events they help share ideas in communities around the world.
TED is a global community and so is their staff. They are based in New York and Vancouver, but the global and collaborative nature of their work means they have em- ployees, advisors and volunteers around the world.
What is a TED Conference? TED means technology, en- tertainment, design–three major thematic areas that are giving shape to our world collectively. But at a TED Confer- ence is broader still, showing important ideas in any disci- pline, and explore how everyone they are connected. The format is fast pace: 50 + conversations in the course of a week, as well as morning and evening meetings. As tak- en in the program, attendees and speakers from different elds can cross – fertilize and draw inspiration from unlikely places. This is the magic of TED.
How does TED work? TED is owned by a non-partisan non-pro t foundation. Their agenda is to make big ideas accessible and lead a conversation. Everything they do – from their videos of TED Talks to projects caused by the TED Prize of the community global TEDx lessons TED-Ed series – is driven by this goal: great ideas how can we disseminate?
