  • Lenses are owned by organizations like TED, professional societies, publishers, even individuals. Each lens focuses on the part of the KC deemed “high quality”.

  • Thanks – it’s great to be here – this has been a great conference. Let me start with a couple questions: Has anyone here learned anything new? Met someone new? Been inspired? How many of you would recommend this to a friend? How about 6 billion friends? What I’d like to talk about today is a big deam – a dream of scaling up this extraordinary TED experience from the 800 of us to the entire world. (There are 800 of you here today; what if we could scale this up to 800M or a few billion and make this incredible TED experience accessible to EVERYONE?)
