TED was originally a conference bringing folks together around technology, entertainment, and design. The scope has since broadened to include business, science, culture, arts, and global issues. The website features free-to-the public lectures from a fascinating array of thinkers and doers. You can view the lectures online or download a podcast.
Once hooked, you can opt to join other TEDsters at one of the TED conferences or a conference simulcast. For an overview of TED, check out the video above.
Information mavens and wannabe know-it-alls alike will love TED!
