"Icons. Geniuses. Mavericks."

That is the theme for this year's iteration of TED. As Bruno points out, TED2007 is nearly here and he will be live blogging what transpires.

With session titles such as "epiphany," "exploration & awe," "simplicity" and "truth & invention" - my kind of subject matter - the schedule is packed with interesting people doing world-changing work. I'm certain that TEDblog and Bruno will issue frequent updates, but IF readers might also Google "TED," "TED2007" or search the Technorati tags for news and opinion.

I believe that Ethan Zuckerman will also be live blogging.

And lastly, check out the very well done and frequently updated TEDtalks video series for TED flavor from speakers past.
