The Creator Of TED Aims To Reinvent Conferences Once Again


Wurman promises that the conference will be “like a dinner party with a hundred of the world’s greatest minds having a conversation, two at a time.”


Website here.

Simply pairings of amazingly interesting individuals prompted by a question, generating a conversation. For 10 minutes to 50 minutes. And so it will go – conversations interlaced with threads of improvised music. An astrophysicist & a microbiologist. An actor & a playwright. A jazz musician & a classical one. An energetic exploration of the lost art of conversing.

The 100 most interesting individuals:

minds & musicians in improvised discourse

A live performance.

A tablet app.

A live stream.

The most innovative moments, the sparks of ideas, & fundamental truths come from conversations between two individuals.

Goal… Attend #TED in the next 10 years…
