TED goes on vacation

Posted by: Tedstaff

Sandcastle1Time off is a beautiful thing. It’s also an essential — the thing we all need to breathe deeply, enjoy life, and come back to work refreshed. This was the point of Stefan Sagmeister’s talk, The Power of Time Off. Stefan Sagmeister: The power of time off Stefan Sagmeister: The power of time off In it, he shares that every seven years, he takes a year-long sabbatical.

We in the TED office would never do that. But for the next two weeks, our offices will be closed as we do a little summer relaxing to rejuvenate and come back stronger than ever in the fall. But we won’t just leave you hanging. While we won’t be posting new talks over the next two weeks, we will be surfacing easy breezy summer talks — the kind of talks that just go with the sunshine and fresh air. And while the blog will be officially closed, we will be posting a few special things for you — and resurfacing some of our favorite posts of the past year.

We’ll be back with new talks and blog posts on Tuesday, September 3rd. Until then, we’ll leave you with these incredible images of our software engineer Alex Dean making a TED sandsculpture with his nephews at Ocean Shores, WA.
