Tonight: Watch TED’s Full Spectrum auditions online

Posted by: Emily McManus

Tonight: Watch the first-ever TED auditions, to explore the theme of TED2012: Full Spectrum. We challenged the TED community: Make a one-minute video that describes your idea worth sharing — and how you’d share it with the world. We received hundreds of submissions from around the world in our short timeframe, and narrowed our finalists down to a group of 17, with a wide range of formats and styles.

Watch our 17 Full Spectrum audition finalists present their TEDTalks tonight, May 24, 7-9pm Eastern, via livestream:
