TED Talks are back in Vancouver April 10-14th, with this year’s theme being ‘The Age Of Amazement.’

A quick rundown of what TED Talks are: they originally started in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design came together and is shown globally in over 100 languages. It’s a non-profit organization with hopes of spreading inspiring and influential ideas.
