With 300 million views since we started posting video in 2006, TEDTalks have become a powerful cultural force. But it all starts with a single person on a stage … At TED2010, we sent a video crew to follow two speakers as they prepared to give the talk of their lives. One, the artist Raghava KK , had never spoken at TED before. The other, Sir Ken Robinson , in 2006 gave one of the most emailed TEDTalks of all time; this was his first time speaking at TED since then. Behind the TEDTalk: New mini documentary starring Sir Ken and Raghava KK
Engineering the 10 000-Year Clock Photo: Quinn Norton TIMEKEEPERS: Parallel computing pioneer Danny Hillis [right] dreamed up the 10 000-Year Clock as a way to encourage long-range thinking. He and Alexander Rose [left] are now leading the clock's design and engineering team. "Building a big physical thing is just cool," Rose says. On a bright blue morning in February, I drove to the San Rafael shop with Rose to see the first assembled piece of the clock in action: several 2.4-meter-wide gears for the chime generator, one of the largest and most complex parts of the clock. Over the lifetime of the clock, the chime generator will ring a series of 10 bells in a different arrangement each time.
