TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives in just 18 minutes. The results are some of the best professional development available on the web. The TED web site makes these talks available, free of charge, for viewing online and also for download via a podcast feed. The breadth of topics is quite fascinating and I find myself sharing these many of these talks with my staff via our web site, and at staff meetings. A great example is Sir Kenneth Robinson's talk entitled "Do Schools Kill Creativity?".
