The line up of speakers for next year’s TED conference has just been announced. I was thrilled to be asked back to cover the conference for BusinessWeek again… Even more so now I’ve seen who will be there. Excitingly for me personally, the visual arts representatives look particularly strong (Golan Levin’s work is provocative and intriguing, while Olafur Eliasson’s installation at the Tate in London a few years ago was simply astonishing — I even loved his waterfall installations in New York’s east river earlier this summer, though I think I might be the only person who did.) But as you might expect, there are a ton of other big names attending and speaking — Tim Berners-Lee and post-MSFT Bill Gates among them. I’ll be live blogging, tweeting (@HelenWalters), interviewing and video-ing while I’m there. Stay tuned!
What comes next? The Bloomberg Businessweek Innovation and Design blog chronicles new tools for creativity and collaboration, innovation case studies in both the corporate and social sectors, and the new ideas that have the power to change the way things have always been done.
