TED definitely has “ideas worth spreading.”
TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) was founded in 1984 as a one-off event with an annual conference began in 1990. Today the platform has expanded to offer TED events held throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia, offering live streaming of talks on a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling.
As of last year alone, TED Talks have been watched one billion times worldwide, reflecting a growing global audience.
