TED is a conference devoted to the spread of innovative ideas and practices. 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 encompassing science, business, arts and global issues. The annual conferences bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, and is attended by more than a thousand, with thousands more viewing the presentations online.
