TED ranks as probably the greatest showcase of collective smart thinking on the planet. It’s held in Monterey, California every year and attracts some of the world’s most interesting thinkers and speakers. The 2007 TED is imminent and features the likes of Bill Clinton, Edward deBono, Lawrence Lessig, Paul Simon, Philippe Starck, Richard Branson – the list goes on and on.
I would love to go but the time, distance and considerable expense kind of rule it out. However, as the next best thing, you can see many of the previous years’ presentations here. Warning though: this is a productivity black hole – I’ve spent some serious time in the last week checking these out (I’ll put it down to training).
