TED is a 24-year old conference meant to solicit and spread inspiring ideas. Of course, since I’m usually falling off the last turnip truck into town, I saw my first TED talk just a few weeks ago, thanks to my friend Damon. You can see Malcolm Gladwell talking about market segmentation here. Highly recommended.
Based on my experience with that lone video, I’m going to watch as much as I can of this year’s TED2008 conference, which starts this week. Live video streaming of the talks begins Thursday night at 5:15 PM PDT.
Apparently schedules aren’t necessary for people with five brains, but I only have a puny, normal brain and I can’t seem to find a schedule of speakers for the TED2008 conference anywhere. Perhaps the TED types communicate not over HTTP, but over TP (Telepathy Protocol). A kingdom for a schedule!
