6 reasons I’m excited by our new website

TED Blog

After an 18 month labor of love, we formally launched the new version of our website today.  Here are six things I’m proud of:

1. The team used every opportunity to engage you, our audience, in the new site’s conception, testing and rollout. So your highest priorities were our highest priorities. Beta versions of the site have been used for several months and as a result many key tweaks have already been made.

2. The new video player gives each talk a whole new sense of drama and cinematic power. Many of our speakers spend months preparing the talk they unleash on the world at TED. Our new video player — and the photos, headlines and graphics around it — have been scaled to reflect the significance of their effort. If you believe in the power of ideas, the visuals of our site should reflect that.
