TED was founded in 1984 in California with the first TED conference in Monterey. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design and the nonprofit organization has a global reach with conferences in Europe, the Americas, and Asia. Engineers, doctors, innovators, designers, artists, and writers among others are given up to 18 minutes to speak about their work or causes. These talks are recorded and streamed through the TED website.
