TED – the annual conference that brings together some of the planet’s brightest thinkers – returns to Vancouver for its second instalment, March 16-20. The lineup for TED2015 is packed with more innovators and game changers than ever, including space jumper (and Google VP) Alan Eustace, TV producer Shonda Rhimes, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and exoplanet expert Sara Seager.
Tickets to see the four-day conference live in the Vancouver Convention Centre, however, will set you back $8,500 US a pop (Not to mention, you have to submit a formal application to get one and they sold out months ago). But that doesn’t mean you have to wait for the 18-minute speeches to show up on YouTube to get in on the action. There’s another way to take in all the TED wisdom live – and for free.
