TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our world. But a TED conference is broader still, showcasing important ideas from any discipline, and exploring how they all connect. https://www.ted.com/

KPL will show a TED talk from this year’s TED conference each half hour.  Please click on the author’s names below to learn more about their talks.  The talks usually last about 15 minutes, so we’ll have time for a little discussion between videos.  No registration required and no charge.  Put your name in a drawing for a door prize; we’ll draw the name on Friday and call you if you win!
