WHAT ARE TED TALKS

Have you heard of TED TALKS? Wondering what they are all about?

TED.com is a non profit organization that is dedicated to spreading ideas, in the form of short powerful talks which usually last 18 minutes or less. It began in 1984 as a way to discuss topics like technology, entertainment and design, and has expanded to now cover almost all topics; everything from science, to business to global issues.
