TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages
Everything TED supports from its TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Edlesson series — are driven by its goal to spread great ideas. We love TED and hope you will too.
