What is TED?
The history of TED started in 1984 with the convergence of Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since 2006 TED has been available online and is a collection of over 2000 talks. Each talk is just five to 18 mins long and a new talk is added every week day. You can watch them all, for free, anytime.
