2006 TEDPrize Wishes

Posted by: Tedconfamy

The three TED Prize wishes presented last week are all insanely HUGE ideas and each has the power to change the world we’re living in.

DreamsLarry Brilliant: I wish you will help build a global system to detect each new disease or disaster as quickly as it emerges or occurs.

Jehane Noujaim: I wish to bring the world together for one day a year through the power of film.

Cameron Sinclair: I wish to create a community that actively embraces open source design to generate innovative and sustainable living standards for all.

The response has been incredible so far, with hundreds of offers of help already in. We’re organizing the resources and creating the plan to grant these wishes, then we’ll put out a call for the remaining needs. In the meantime, you can watch the full recorded TEDPrize webcast online.

If you have any ideas, thoughts or offers around these wishes, please email me: amy (at) ted (dot) com. These are exciting times…
