Steve Case is a highly respected individual for many reasons, but most importantly because he is the co-founder of America Online, or AOL as you might know it.
AOL is one of the biggest online resources today, and it has a huge influence over “interactive services, Internet technologies and e-commerce services.”
Case has been attending TED for two decades, and he thinks these 10 are worthy of your must watch list.
What started as a ‘dinner party for a hundred of the world’s greatest minds’ (which is how founder Richard Saul Wurman initially conceived of TED) has now evolved to be a global platform for ‘ideas worth spreading.’ The decision by Chris Anderson to launch TED.com and make the talks available to the world has made TED all the more impactful, not just for the ideas, but for the people sharing them. Ken Robinson, for example, was respected for his views on education, but after his TED talk was downloaded 14 million times, he became a global icon for creativity, virtually overnight.
It has been amazing to watch TED’s transition from party to platform, and from a small gathering for the benefit of a few in Monterey, California to a massive global movement. Choosing my favorite TEDTalks after so many years was no easy task, but here goes…
