"We will encounter some of the brightest minds and freshest thinking and reduce them to 30 second sound bites and fill the bulk of the movie with meaningless, self promoting drivel from the current TED director and the adventures of the host as she gets coffee and goes to the beach.
Save your money and watch the presentations for free from the TED website."
The website has more content, but the DVD gives a better his

"the website has more content, but the DVD gives a better history. I love the concept, I like the narrative, but I was hoping for more of the presentations that were given at TED. I guess it all you could ask for in a two disk set. The web site is a great place to go for inspiration and guidance. http://www.ted.com/index.php"
A modest, but inspiring documentary

"This film provides in interesting perspective on TED. First, it's about TED 2006, which means that the ideas presented have had time to come to fruition: a man introduces multi-touch, which has become the iPhone. Next, the film is about the whole TED experience, not just the 20 minute speeches: you can see how the speeches lead to collaboration. For instance, you see how Majora Carter goes from outsider to the board of directors of Al Gore's organization. You see Larry Brilliant go from a man with a powerful idea, to the man who runs google.org. You see how Bono combined with tech gurus to create a grass roots organization that advocates for Africa. It's not just ideas, it's about the power of people coming together to combine their passions and skills.
How much time have you spent finding problems that you care about deeply? How much time have you spent trying to find a way to solve those problems? TED is inspiring because the solutions are effective and clever, but not genius. If you haven't tried to solve big problems it's only because you didn't think to try. We are all clever enough. We all have something to contribute."
