Ideas Worth Spreading
December 14, 2009 Volume 1, Issue 1
TED Delivers Innovation to the Masses What is TED? It’s mission statement is clear: “TED is devoted to giving millions of knowledge-seekers around the globe direct access to the world's greatest thinkers and teachers. “And the “ideas worth spreading” are drawn from the fields ofTechnology,Entertainment orDesign .
How do they spread the ideas?
TED has two methods for spreading the knowledge: real world conferences and videoed lectures via www.ted.com. The main event is a real-world annual conference held in the Long Beach, California. Other similar conferences, such as TECGlobal, TEDIndia, and TEDActive, are held in various cities across the world. Each of the conferences provides an intense four-day set of rapid fire, and often riveting, presentations. Attendance is by invitation only, although, you can submit an application to be considered as an invitee. Some of the conferences are also simulcast. Membership fees range from $6,000 to a specially discounted $2,000 (cont. page 2)
