Meet our new Ideas Editor, Helen Walters

Posted by: Tedstaff

Helen-WaltersWelcome our new Ideas Editor, Helen Walters. We’re excited to have her around all the time; she’s been writing for TED.com, off and on, since 2007. Last year she was part of our marathon, can’t-stop-won’t-stop coverage of TED2012 and TEDGlobal 2012, where she wrote, in four days, 39,000 words. She’s nuts.

Formerly the editor of innovation and design at Bloomberg Businessweek, Helen blogs, tweets, writes, and talks about design at events around the world.

At TED, she’ll be working to connect our TED Talks videos with the wider world of ideas in print, on video and online — building an online context that lets ideas ping and prod each other with maximum effect.
