One of the most influential events in technology starts tomorrow Tuesday February 28th but there are some social spaces and workshops being held today. The TED 2012 conference founded in 1984 stands for Technology Entertainment and Design and the goal is to spread ideas worth spreading. Autodesk is committed to all three of the focuses of TED and will have several events during TED this year as well as being a TED sponsor.
Autodesk will also be holding more IDEAS Cage Fights Wednesday Night for TED attendees just like we have at the IDEAS Innovation + Design Series and recently Autodesk University. They are a great way to see opposing sides debate serious topics in a fun atmosphere.
TED presentations are published free throughout the year and if you ever thought about learning something deeply from a passionate visionary or wanted to learn to be a top level speaker, this is the right spot. You can watch previously recorded presentations on the web or your mobile devices and I would encourage you to check it out. Check it out at http://www.ted.com/ “Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.”
