TED’s mission: Spreading ideas.
Rhodia will be providing 800 pocket Webnotebooks to the participants of the TEDGlobal event in Oxford this July. TED is an “intelligentsia” group of intellectuals, business people, creatives, academics, entrepreneurs from around the world. (Primarily Europe, North America and Asia.)
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. Along with the annual TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK, TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Program, the new TEDx community program, this year’s TEDIndia Conference and the annual TED Prize.
