“Ideas are an unlimited commodity”, say Chris Anderson, organiser of the annual TED conference in Long Beach, California. TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment and Design. Selected speakers are invited to hold talks with a maximum length of 18 minutes, which meet the motto of the conference: “Ideas worth spreading”. Bill Gates demonstrated energy solutions of the future, Jamie Oliver talked about teaching children about food and Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page gave an insight into the “Google machine”. Every TED Talk presents a complex issue in an entertaining and intelligible way. Videos of the talks are open to the public on the official TED website as well as on YouTube, free of charge. To this day, they have been viewed more than one billion times. On of the most successful speakers is Austrian graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister, who’s attended TED four times until now. His talks about happiness were viewed several million times. Photo: Simon Zirkunow, License CC BY 3.0
