Introducing TED Conversations

Standard

TED.com’s website is incredible.  Not only can you watch hundreds of TED and Best of the Web presentations, but you can also use TED’s “new platform for sharing ideas”: TED Conversations. Touted as the place for ideas, questions, and debates, TED Conversations allows you to start your own conversation or contribute to others. (Source).
