The TED2011 program guide — containing short speaker bios and sharp portraits by Siegfried Woldhek, plus a magazine of info about TED projects — is available in a couple of electronic forms this year, for the first time at a Long Beach TED.
First to drop: the TED2011 iPad app. Using some new software, Adobe helped us port the program guide over to iPad, for a zippy and interactive way to learn more about TED. You can scroll easily through pages, take notes on each speaker onscreen (and mail them to yourself), fill out a wish card to support a TED Prize project, and play with some fun animated and interactive ads that take advantage of the iPad’s large screen and some new Adobe technology.
For desktop, the TED2011 Program Guide offers a smooth and easy browse. The Air-based reader is searchable and clickable, and a real pleasure to turn the pages of. Download it here — note that it’s a large file.
If you’re watching TED on a webstream, joining the TEDxLive viewing party on March 2, or following news from the conference on the TED Blog and Twitter — this app and desktop file will be very handy. We’d love your feedback, either in comments below or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
