16 Amazing All Stars at TED 2014

pink starThere's something new and very cool at TED 2014 (in addition to the multitude of other new and cool things TED always comes up with!).

This year, a select group of previous speakers are back in "All Star" sessions to update the TED community. (TEDStars?)

In addition to the 22 history makers who will speak on the TED main stage, the All Star sessions include 16 amazing women, all of whom have spoken at TED before.

Their talks (at the links below) are riveting: highly recommended viewing!

Enjoy.
