The Huffington Post And TED Present A New Reason To Look Forward To Fridays With The Launch Of TED Weekends

NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today The Huffington Post and TED launch TED Weekends [], a section on the Huffington Post featuring original content and illustrations about "ideas worth spreading."  Each Friday, TED Weekends will present a compelling idea, anchored in a TEDTalk, and then will delve deeper into the idea with contributions from TED speakers, bloggers, experts, and illustrators throughout the course of a weekend.

"I experienced firsthand the power of TEDTalks to share ideas and build community when I gave my own two years ago about the need to renew our estranged relationship with sleep,"  said Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group. "And I'm delighted that TED Weekends will be bringing TEDTalks to the HuffPost platform, expanding the conversation and allowing our community to weigh in on some of the most creative, innovative, and compelling ideas of our time."

"Often when a speaker delivers a great TEDTalk, there's a core idea there that is just demanding to be further explored,"  said Chris Anderson, TED Curator. "The Huffington Post, with its remarkable network of global contributors, has offered us an exciting way to take that promising idea and open it up to perspectives, research and expertise from around the world."

TED Weekends grew out of  the idea that thought-provoking insights about our world should not be consumed in a single bite, but over time – allowing ideas to morph and develop in real-time with input from a range of contributors.

Each weekend, a TED speaker will offer his or her thoughts, igniting an online conversation that will unfold in many unpredictable new directions. Additionally, several TEDTalks will co-premiere on TED Weekends.

TED Weekends will explore a variety of intriguing topics ranging from "Understanding Deception" to "Why People Believe Crazy Things" to "Behind the Eureka Moment," and will feature written and visual contributions from around the world. Graphic artists will also contribute illustrations to TED Weekends and present the essence of an idea as they see it.
