TEDx WallStreet – Tickets
A TED event is coming to the capital markets in New York, see http://tedxwallstreet.com/ for details. For anyone unfamiliar with TED.com, here's their description:
TED is a 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 two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
Some of the best presentations I've seen have been given at a TED conference, have a look at their catalogue, you can click on "Most viewed" on the left to see their greatest hits. There's also an iPad app to download and watch the speeches offline.
What is TEDx Wall Street?
The first TEDxWallStreet will be held on March 30, 2012 at the New York Stock Exchange. Global demand has never been stronger for an event to examine ideas worth spreading in finance. TEDxWallStreet is a radically different arena from typically commercial, finance-related conferences. This event was conceived to provide a single platform for the brightest, most inspiring minds in finance, giving them carte blanche on a global stage. Curated speakers will share unique ideas focused on the theme of Redefining Success to a hand picked audience of 300 of the brightest, most influential and forward thinking New York residents. Talks will be shared with the greater TED on-line audience consisting of millions around the world.
