TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), or "Ted Talks," are conferences presented by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation, and have been bringing "Ideas Worth Spreading" to the stage for over 26 years.
Past TED speakers have included many Nobel Prize winners, Bill Clinton, former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Roger Ebert, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Al Gore, Bono, and Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. (Listen to over 1,900 talks freely available on the Ted.com website.)
By obtaining free TEDx licenses, organizations can present TED-style, but independently organized events in their communities. Some of these talks are later selected for TED Talk videos.
