The organisers of TEDxTokyo asked the company I work for (eat) to make them a website / blog to track the TED event being hosted here in Tokyo on may the 22nd.

The website runs bi-lingually in Japanese and English. You can find it here: http://tedxtokyo.com/blog/

Various videos and other information will be added to the site after the event.

I tried to emulate the official TED website as much as possible with the design, using their classic red and white colour scheme. As we’ll probably end up with all sorts of videos I simply opted for a black box to contain them, instead of a fancy player as seen on the TED site.

For those not aquatinted with TED, this quote from their website should clarify things:

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).

There are numerous videos on the TED site which can be watched for free, from the likes of Bill Gates, Al Gore, J.J. Abrams, Tim Berners-Lee & Richard Dawkins to name but a few.

Many thanks to Erik Johansson.
