Posted by Deepak Hariharan

TED, the abbreviation for Technology Entertainment Design, is a conference that defines its mission as "ideas worth spreading" . It started out in 1984 as a move to bring people from three different spheres together - Technology Entertainment Design. The lectures, also called TED Talks, cover a broad set of topics including science, arts and design, politics, education, culture, business, global issues, technology and development, and entertainment.

TED was founded by Richard Saul Wurman and Harry Marks in the year 1984. TED has been held annually since 1990. The lectures are given by renown people from various fields. For example, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, James D Watson etc. The lectures are aimed mainly to bring out various ideas in good interests. Its held in various places and lectures are given by people from various fields. For instance, Bill Clinton, in 2007, talked about building health care system in Rwanda.The programme give away a prize money of $100,000 and granted a "wish to change the world" which they unveil at TED. This act was introduced in the year 2006. Talks have been made available online on the TED website, youtube and iTunes.

The TED has been headquartered in New York City and Vancouver. The conference is held in Monterey, California. But TED has launched a programme called TED India to be held this year during November at Mysore. Well, The TED has not declared about speakers, but there are a lot of obvious questions which can be discussed at the conference. The significant role TED plots is it scans through bare minimum. All problems affecting are considered over the conference. Let it be poverty or malnutrition or even an epidemic over a small place. TED comes forward to solve the problems which are stamped 'IMPOSSIBLE'. TED is not only a problem-solver but can be an entertainer too. A lot of Bollywood stars are expected for the TED conference at Mysore. Renown people from all fields gather at TED conference-music, film industry, scientists etc. Such a gathering can yield a great result. Ideas and solutions are numerous.

Video proving technology has no limits

I went through some of the TED talks. They obviously are inspiring. But other than that, I found something hidden. It maybe a positive sign for a change throughout world that's going to follow. But I bet that, TED is a revolution in all spheres.
