TED Global 2005

TED Global 2005 was really great on many levels! A treat for the mind, meeting great people, interesting subjects, good laughs, a diet (Gala dinner) and much more.

The interesting discussions took place off stage. That is something I thought could have been started on stage with the speakers. The conference could still have been as on-schedule as it was if the host would have facilitated it properly.

Some people have blogged about the conference:
- Black Looks: TED Global
- The Post Money Value: TEDGLOBAL vs. well, everything else
- Seth's Blog: Stuck (with a bump on the head)
- "Hello_World": TED Global -180 seconds of fame
But some expect more:
Blackbeltjones/Work: Thread-bare TED

I hope more posts trickle in this week.

A lot of photo's are available from the Tedsters and on the official site.
My contribution? An explanation of a little yellow thingy.
