TED Conference

The TED 2009 Conference started yesterday in Long Beach, California.  My company was kind enough to secure access to the live streaming videocast to TED, so I had a chance to watch many of the amazing speakers

Seth Godin and Ray Anderson were my favourite speakers so far, but I'm also looking forward to hearing Herbie Hancock on Friday.

To enhance the experience, there is an official Ted Twitter feed, a TED Flickr page and some live blogging.

If you can't watch this year's conference live, you can watch TED videos of fantastic presenters from previous TEDs.
