It’s still too early to know where the idea of building a TEDViz community might take us, but here’s a post by Michelle Borkin that explains how it all started.

Then it happened, the idea was born: how about “TEDViz”?  A whole TED meeting devoted to “visualization”?  Visualization in the abstract, in art and design, in business, in the sciences, online and in print…  It is one “field” that is extremely important and valued by TED, yet has in many ways been neglected.  We instantly started rambling off the tops of our heads all the brilliant visualization designers, researchers, and developers who should have a chance to spread their ideas in only the way TED intended yet have never had the chance to attend TED

    The spirit of TEDViz - to make visible ideas worth spreading - is full of promise. One can imagine a wide range of visualizations of Sir Ken Robinson’s talk on creativity and Tony Robbin’s framework for human fulfillment to presentations on dinosaur walking and extreme sports. You can find a few approaches at http://www.tomwujec.com in the gallery section. I think the real value of TEDViz is not just the recording of ideas, but the creation of thinking and collaboration tools to help individuals and teams better understand and apply the topics.
