Michael Shermer on Strange Beliefs 2006
Stuart Brown, Serious Play 2008
What may not be quite as well known is that these presenters and participants in the TED conferences are TED fellows who are collaborators with other innovators within the TED community, and that there are two application periods to become one of the TED fellows.
"Who should applyThere are two competitive application periods.
We are looking for an eclectic, heterogeneous group of young thinkers and doers from the fields of technology, entertainment, design, the sciences, engineering, humanities, the arts, economics, business, journalism, entrepreneurship and NGOs.
At TED, we can take risks on unconventional innovators. We value achievement over credentials -- making and doing over merely talking.
We are targeting applicants of ages 21-40 from five target regions: Africa, Asia/Pacific, the Caribbean, Latin America, the Middle East. However, anyone over the age 18 from around the world is welcome to apply."
See the TED Fellows webpage for more information on the program and the application process.
