See a TED conference live for the first time in Thailand! TED 2011 held in the United States under the theme “The Rediscovery of Wonder” will be live-streamed to TCDC on 3 March 2011.

TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Previous speakers include Bill Clinton, former US President; Steve Jobs, co-founder and chief executive officer of Apple Inc.; Gordon Brown, UK Prime Minister; Al Gore, former US Vice President who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 and Larry Page, co-founder of Google.

For 2011, TED has assembled a cast of characters capable of stirring the imagination as never before. Explorers, storytellers, photographers, scientific pioneers, visionaries and provocateurs from all parts of the globe.
