My TED story
Happened to see a telecast of a TED Conference and had been checking in from time to time to see what's new at TED. The new conversations section is a great way for people to rerally visit the ideas in presentations that stirred their hearts or imaginations and it seems already a place that may be an incubator for future TED talks.
