TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design)

is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. TED was founded in February 1984[5] as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990.[6] TED’s early emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics.[7]

The main TED conference is held annually in VancouverBritish ColumbiaCanada at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Prior to 2014, the conference was held in Long Beach.[8] TED events are also held throughout North America and in Europe and Asia, offering live streaming of the talks. They address a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture, often through storytelling.[9] The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can.[10] Past speakers include Bill ClintonJane GoodallAl GoreTemple GrandinGordon BrownDavid CameronBilly GrahamRichard DawkinsBill GatesDolph LundgrenBonoGoogle founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and many Nobel Prize winners.[11] TED’s current curator is the British former computer journalist and magazine publisher Chris Anderson.[12]

Since June 2006,[2] TED Talks have been offered for free viewing online, under an Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives Creative Commons license, through TED.com.[15] As of January 2018, over 2,600 TED Talks are freely available on the website.[16] In June 2011, TED Talks’ combined viewing figure stood at more than 500 million,[17] and by November 2012, TED Talks had been watched over one billion times worldwide.[18] Not all TED Talks are equally popular, however. Those given by academics tend to be watched more online while art and design videos tend to be watched less than average.[19]
