Ideas Worth Spreading

Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.

Many are subtitled in a variety of languages, and have an interactive transcript.

Almost as good and almost as free is the site

An independently organized TED event is coming to UCLA. June 18, 2011 from 10am-3pm.
