TED is coming to Lagos, Nigeria

Still wondering what TED is all about?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TED conferences bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less) while the TEDx program gives communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
