TEDsummit Update

TEDx organizers Kymberlee Weil and Mark Sylvester spent last week in Banff, Alberta, Canada, with 1,000 other TEDsters to talk about the Future of TED.

Over six days, we met with other organizers and members of the TED community to discuss what questions we should be asking ourselves, our speakers and others dedicated to helping the TED mission of Ideas Worth Spreading. You can imagine there was a lot to talk about.

At the conclusion of the event, there were 12 areas to focus on. If you’​d like to learn more about the TEDsummit, you can read all about each session on the TED Blog.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
