TED conference talks available online.

TED is the well known technology entertainment and design conference that was founded by information guru Richard Saul Wurman (if you are not familiar with Wurman, he essentially coined the concepts of information architecture and filters) and is now maintained by media guru Chris Anderson, who originally launched Business 2.0 [not to be confused with long tail guru Chris Anderson]. Its main draw is the eclectic nature of the speakers invited, which theoretically leads to a witches' brew of knowledge cross-pollination. Whether this phenomenon actually occurs remains to be seen. Certainly there is little cross-pollination from a socioeconomic standpoint, given the several thousand dollar fee for attendance.
