A Brief Blog Profile: TED Blog
I first met TED through its TEDx program that gives individuals, communities, and organizations the chance to speak at the local level about their experiences. I wrote about my favorite TEDx videos for the Social Media Club a couple of years ago in Let's Talk About TEDx.
I'm a big fan of TED. According to the blog, it was started in 1984 as a conference to bring together folks from three worlds: technology, entertainment, and design. It turns out, TED has a blog devoted to "ideas worth spreading."
A couple recent TED blog posts I particularly enjoyed were 8 illuminating facts about clouds and why tall wooden buildings must be our future: a visual essay by Michael Green.
Oh, and one more -- a personal favorite that appeals to my running self: how marathons can heal communities: five incredible stories.
