TED Talks: Get Inspired

At a time when the world's problems can seem overwhelming, the TED conference offers a welcome dose of passion, optimism, and powerful ideas.

Every year a thousand or so of the brightest, most innovative, and best-connected people on the planet meet to share their most exciting new ideas. Nobel laureates, high-tech tycoons, and MacArthur "genius" community organizers take time out of their schedules—and $6,000 out of their wallets—to listen to three days of 18-minute-long speeches at the invitation-only TED conference.

If you go, you may find yourself sitting next to regulars like Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, Larry Brilliant, director of Google's philanthropic arm, Vice President Al Gore, or novelist Amy Tan.

If your invitation got lost in the mail or if you couldn’t find time on your calendar, don’t worry—hundreds of TED talks are now available for free on TED.com, with several more added each week. Not only can you watch them, you’re free to download them, post them on your own Web site, or burn a DVD and share them with friends, family and whomever else you can think of. … Back to Article
