TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. At the TED conference, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to share a brilliant idea -- in 18 minutes. These talks are made available free online at TED.com.

ABC News is taking a deeper look into the remarkable work of TED speakers and their ideas, and features playlists of great TED Talks on ABCNews.com.
