Quote of the day

"You have a mind and other people. Start with those and change the world."
– Liz Coleman, Saturday, Feb. 7
"Every day at TED something moved me to tears." – cbehrlich, via Twitter

It's TED's 25th anniversary. But instead of looking back, we looked forward. Everyone on the TED2009 program premiered something: a thrilling discovery, a revolutionary idea, a powerful invention, a spectacular piece of art, a first-time performance. We shared undiscovered talent and shed new light on names you know. We're now busy turning these astonishing four days into TEDTalks to share with the world throughout the coming year.
