What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to "ideas worth spreading". The annual 5-day TED Conference is held in Vancouver, BC, Canada and invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less to a curated audience. These "TED Talks" are then uploaded to the internet and made available at TED.com.
What is TEDxLive?
TEDxLive is a live stream of the official TED Conference right here in the library as it happens in Vancouver. It's an opportunity to join in with TED attendees (and other live-streamers) around the world and be among the first to hear TED's newest ideas.
