It’s time for TED!: The stage revealed

The TED2013 stage might make you want to climb. Inspired by a treehouse, the spectacular stage brings together huge, winding tree limbs and structures that evoke the Swiss Family Robinson. The stage features multiple levels which speakers can utilize for their talk. We’ve given up the red carpet this year, yes, but added a new detail we love: the waving TED flag. To sum it up: it’s our most playful stage yet.

Get ready for session 1, “Progress Enigma,” starting at 11am PST. Follow along here on the TED Blog, where we’ll be writing a recap of each speaker’s talk, in real time.
