About TED

TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.

TinyTED extends these remarkable ideas beyond the constraints of bandwidth and language. Translations are created by volunteers in the TED Translators program. TinyTED is an experiment by Chris Herbert and Jenny Zurawell.
