TED growing to be the open-sourced version of the G20 Summits.

Every year there are more and more TED conferences with multitudes of people getting involved not only in the talks but the speakers agendas as well. Ideas are spread and the truly great ones are being nurtured and become the base for even more ideas to branch off of.
