Bono, Richard Dawkins and Al Gore Speaking at TED

Every year, a thousand “thought-leaders, movers and shakers” get together at a four-day conference

called TED (which is short for Technology, Entertainment and Design). In past years, the list of speakers has ranged from Sergey Brin and Larry Page to Bill Gates, to Herbie Hancock and Peter Gabriel, to Frank Gehry and Billy Graham. This year Bill Clinton, Paul Simon, and Larry Lessig are set to speak. It almost goes without saying that not just anyone can attend such an event. You’ll need an invitation for starters, plus $4400 to cover admission fees. If you can look past the country clubbishness of the event, then you may find it worth spending time with the audio (iTunesFeed) and video (iTunesFeed) podcasts of talks from recent conferences. Some “vodcasts” you’ll want to check out include: Bono, Peter Gabriel, Richard Dawkins, Malcolm Gladwell, and Al Gore. (We’re not sure what to say about Tony Robbins.)
