TED Pearltree is dedicated to organizing and sharing TEDtalks in a way which tell a story. As it stands now, there are 1100+ TEDtalks. At first, I organized them in the way which made sense to me. Now...
I invite you, TED team members, to rearrange, reorganize, add new TEDtalks as you see fit. Do not worry about "messing up" the order or organization of each pearltree, simply move and add as you see fit. If something goes wrong, please just comment on the pearltree in question, and I will use the revision history to correct any accidents.
If you would rather create an entire new branch, please, feel more then able to create a New PearlTree and take on an entirely fresh topic/idea. Mar 12

AMERICAN CHRONICLES about the TED ideas conference. TED—a four-day conference of research lectures, technology demonstrations, arts performances, and self-described world-changing ideas—has become in recent years a showroom for the intellectual style of the digital age. It is today home to the fastest-growing, best-educated, and wealthiest creative communities in America. (Admission to the Long Beach conference starts at seventy-five hundred dollars, not including the hotel; tickets are sold solely by invitation, or through an application that includes both essays and references.) Although TED is now based in New York, it remains spiritually centered on the California coast. People who know TED these days frequently know it best from “TED Talks,” a series of Internet lecture videos that has received more than eight hundred million views to date.
Have TED Talks Turned Ideas into an Industry?

TED talks are lying to you
The writer had a problem. Books he read and people he knew had been warning him that the nation and maybe mankind itself had wandered into a sort of creativity doldrums. Economic growth was slackening. The Internet revolution was less awesome than we had anticipated, and the forward march of innovation, once a cultural constant, had slowed to a crawl.
A suitably vague but uplifting photo of hot air balloon. Photo: Getty Images I’ve long been amused by the slogan of , makers of the ubiquitous talks. ’s slogan is this: ‘Ideas worth spreading.’ Apparently has some ideas, and we should spread them. What ideas? Ideas that in its infinite wisdom has picked out for us, ideas which are therefore implied to be true and good and right.
The trouble with TED talks
Don't mention income inequality please, we're entrepreneurs - Media Criticism
There was a bit of a scandal last week when it was reported that a TED Talk on income equality had been censored. That turned out to be not quite the entire story. Nick Hanauer, a venture capitalist with a book out on income inequality, was invited to speak at a TED function. He spoke for a few minutes, making the argument that rich people like himself are not in fact job creators and that they should be taxed at a higher rate. The talk seemed reasonably well-received by the audience, but TED “curator” Chris Anderson told Hanauer that it would not be featured on TED’s site, in part because the audience response was mixed but also because it was too political and this was an “election year.”

Melinda Gates and Bill Gates Why giving away our wealth has been the most satisfying thing we've done In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates—then engaged—took a walk on a beach in Zanzibar, and made a bold decision on how they would make sure that their wealth from Microsoft went back into society. In a conversation with Chris Anderson, the couple talks about their work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as about their marriage, their children, their failures and the satisfaction of giving most of their wealth away.
Why bees are disappearing: Marla Spivak at TEDGlobal 2013
Photo: James Duncan Davidson Our supermarket produce aisles would look very, very bare without bees. As MacArthur Fellow Marla Spivak explains on the TEDGlobal stage, this is something we should all be extremely concerned about: the dramatic drop in bee populations that’s been taking place over the past seven years. (Read The New York Times’ take on the especially scary drop in just the last year.) In the United States alone, shares Spivak, while there were 4.5 million bess in 1945, thee are now about 2 million.
(NaturalNews) Allow me to be the first to announce that TED is dead. Why? Because the group that organizes so-called "TED talks" has been thoroughly hijacked by corporate junk science and now openly rejects any talks about GMOs, food as medicine, or even the subject of how food can help prevent behavioral disorders in children.
TED aligns with Monsanto, halting any talks about GMOs, 'food as medicine' or natural healing
