Themes Best of the Web

Best of the Web

From lectures at little-known forums to famous speeches that made history, our "Best of the Web" collection features talks that come from all over the Web -- not just TED or TED's partner conferences -- so long as the video is available for free, and so long as the talk meets our most important benchmark: that it's an Idea Worth Spreading.

Our Best of the Web collection includes a large variety of great talks on technology, entertainment, design and all the other topics you can find on TED.com.

We actively seek out great talks and performances, but we also want your help! We hope you'll forward us any gem you think we should include in the collection -- no matter how obscure or well-known it is. Email us with "Best of the Web suggestion" in the subject line, and a link to where the talk can be seen.
