What if we told you that some of the world’s greatest museums are still open to the public, and you can visit them today—right now!—without ever leaving your living room? Thanks to incredibly high-definition virtual tours, the Louvre’s Egyptian Antiquities, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s Hall of Fossils, and the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel are all just a click away. Happy browsing!
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
