… but as things look now, both economically and physically, I’ll probably never get the chance.
For those not familiar with TED, here is their statement:
WHAT IS TED?
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. The format is fast paced: 50+ talks over the course of four days (to say nothing of the morning and evening events). This immersive environment allows attendees and speakers from vastly different fields to cross-fertilize and draw inspiration from unlikely places. This is the magic of TED.
THREE CONFERENCES EACH YEAR AND TED LIVE
Attending a TED conference is by application. There are several levels of conference membership, and attendance fees depend on which level and conference you choose. Become a TED Live member to watch both TED and TEDGlobal live in your home, school, or office.
Thankfully, the TED folks post the best lectures on YouTube and I get to enjoy them at no charge and get something important to think about.
