Louis Lafair Posted about 2 years ago Annotating TED Talks: A New Platform for Interacting with "Ideas Worth Spreading" For the most part, texts on the platform remain open to annotations. However, it's possible to "publish" a text and to limit the number of additional annotations. With the annotation platform, we're able to break down specific lines from a talk. For example, in "10 top time-saving tech tips," David Pogue mentions a shortcut that allows you to skip the voicemail instructions. A user can then annotate that specific line with how the shortcut changes based on which phone carrier you use (http://news.rapgenius.com/1714469). It's not an official extension to TED. Instead, it's a separate platform that's well-suited to annotating TED Talks.
