TEDTalks turns 4!

Posted by: Emily McManus

Four years ago today, TED flipped the switch on a grand experiment: sharing visionary talks from the TED Conference with the wider world through 18-minute videos. 725 talks, 50 million views, and 8,000+ translations later … we’re thrilled by (and grateful for) the results. Thanks for enjoying, sharing, translating, commenting on and teaching with TEDTalks for the past four years.

It’s been thrilling to watch the community grow around TEDTalks, and spread worldwide via translation and TEDx events and now the TED Open TV Project. And we’re working on even more ways to watch and share TEDTalks. Thanks again for being part of it!
