Riveting Talks by Remarkable People
A Conversation with June Cohen, Executive Producer and Media Director at TED
By John David Mann, Josephine Gross Ph.D.
June Cohen is executive producer of TED Media and the creator of the enor-mously popular online video phenomenon called TEDTalks. TED started in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. TED's reach is as broad as its mission is concise (mission statement: "spreading ideas"). Today, along with two annual conferences in California and Edinburgh, its offerings include the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the inspiring TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize. As of mid-2011, TEDTalks have been watched more than 500 million times worldwide.
