    Anybody know what I'm talking about?
    I got a trip to Vancouver I've been planning for a year, I needed to move some dates around, and all the hotels are booked solid. I asked the agent if there's a conference or convention or something (Vancouver's awesome, but not THAT good), and the response was a group called TED TV booked 90% of all the rooms in town. She said they were from New York and some kind of talk show? How come I've never heard of this? And who the heck books every room from Vancouver to Whistler for an entire week??

    TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are global conferences about spreading ideas. There are tons of "TED talks" online and they are quite informative.

    If you have Netflix you can watch Ted talks for days, on a myriad of topics. They're really informative.

    Yes, but this all so vague. What IS it, who goes to a conference on "spreading ideas"? Doctors, hippies, lawyers, nuns, who? Whose ideas? And who's funding thousands of hotel rooms at $500 CAD a pop?
