TED Talk collections for curious minds

TED was born in 1984 out of Richard Saul Wurman’s observation of a powerful convergence among three fields: technology, entertainment and design.

In the fall of 2012, TED Talks celebrated its one billionth video view. As TED Talks continue to be watched around the world, with an average of 17 new page views a second, TED conferences and events continue to inspire, motivate and thrill attendees. In 2014, the annual TED Conference celebrated its 30th anniversary in Vancouver, Canada. The theme of this milestone conference: “The Next Chapter,” both a reflection on developments of the past 30 years as well as a look at what’s ahead.

TED encourages the spreading of their video talks as long as ” Attribute TED as the owner of the TED Talk and include a link to the talk, but do not include any text that shows TED endorses your website or platform.”
