Every talk I give is a Tedtalk. However, that's been trademarked so I can't use it officially. The TED conferences (Technology, Entertainment and Design) were organized by Richard Saul Wurman, a brilliant designer (I have his guide to Rome) but also an insufferable bore. Packaging the TED conferences as a celebration of collective egotism (We're all so clever and wonderful!) was a brilliant move. What I disliked most: he marched us in repeatedly, over the weekend, for some seven hours of his own very boring maunderings, between which we others go to speak, eat or whatever. Overall, it was a tiresome experience. Based on this, I would not go to a TED conference again. Let alone spend the preposterous amount they cost. Talk about marketing.
