It's been said that the strongest combination is a good tool in the right hands. For a visualization and storytelling tool that intends to change the way people present information, the best possible partner is TED, a global conference about technology, entertainment and design, where the world's most influential speakers and scientists share "ideas worth spreading".
When Peter Halacsy first showed Prezi to me, my immediate thought was TED has got to see this. TEDGlobal Conference is happening this week in Oxford UK. Yesterday, the first ever prezi in TED's history was shown by writer and aphorism expert James Geary.
Right after Geary's speech, curator Chris Anderson announced TED's investment in Prezi from the stage. Chris had an amazing introduction on Prezi, which will also be used this week by another TED speaker, New America Foundation researcher and geopolitics expert, Parag Khanna.
We are very proud and excited!
We have just received a very kind comment from the Audio/Video crew of TEDGlobal. They are the experts behind the scene, who saw every single presentation in the history of the conference. Thank you guys!
"The AV crew at TED Global think prezi is a long awaited refreshing change.
all the best"
