TED2013 Latest Updates

What is TED2013?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in 1984, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

The best moments at TED have often come from unexpected places, and this year, we're pushing that to a new level. This past spring, we staged a global talent search to bring together the most remarkable lineup in TED's history. A series of TED salons in 14 cities around the world helped us discover a broad array of thinkers and doers, and a selection of them have been invited to California to share their work with the world, as part of an extraordinary roster of speakers and performers. Welcome to TED2013: The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.
