TED Conference mysteries revealed
Published 12:55 pm, Tuesday, March 1, 2011
The annual Technology, Entertainment, Design Conference is where the most creative thinkers of today talk about tomorrow, with selected presentations made available on TED's website.
The recently concluded 2011 TED Conference, themed "The Rediscovery of Wonder," brought together explorers, storytellers, photographers, scientific pioneers, visionaries, and provocateurs from all parts of the globe in sessions with such titles as "Monumental," "Majestic," and "Mindblowing." Spanning disciplines from "dinosaur digger" to "robot designer" and featuring presenters from Stanley McChrystal, Bobby McFerrin, and Bill Gates to as-yet-unknown upstarts, TED is renowned for bringing together a constellation of thinkers and doers who are in the process of changing the world as we know it.
At 10 a.m. March 23 at the Westport Library's McManus Room, Technology Librarian Tilly Dutta will talk about the conference and website, and demonstrate the most effective ways to find the 20-minute presentation masterpieces.
