TED Fellowship

February 03, 2009

Darius and Logan have been chosen for the inaugural TED Fellows program at TED Talks in Long Beach, CA. TED Fellows is a program that brings world-changing innovators from across the globe to TED.

TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design, is really awesome: it’s kind of like a conference, except with TED as Superman and all other conferences mere mortals. Here’s an article from Wired Magazine about TED Talks.

TED Talks (which are the presentations TED attendees give) are like Superman-versions of presentations, and Darius and Logan will be giving one.

Darius will share a stage with NASA scientists, activists, artists, and social entrepreneurs like himself. Past speakers include Bill Clinton, novelist Dave Eggers, and Bill Gates, among many, many others.

This is a HUGE honor, but it’s also a very natural one for Darius to receive: TED’s motto–”Ideas worth spreading”–matches Darius’s.

In that spirit, not only is TED hosting Darius and Logan as speakers–a DVD of Darius Goes West is also being included in each of the gift baskets!

Darius can’t wait to share his story on the type of platform that only TED can provide, and the DGW Foundation is grateful to TED for Darius and Logan’s inclusion.

Below, we’ve embedded videos from a couple of Darius’s favorite past Talks.

Releasing the Music In Your Head, from Tod Machover and Dan Ellsey.

Please check out the TED web site to enjoy more fascinating (and addictive!) videos, and look forward to seeing Darius and Logan’s presentation soon!
