Plans for public auditions in 14 countries on six continents unveiled as registration for TED2013 conference opens.
In order to unearth some of the world's most remarkable voices and ideas, TED will host a 14-city global audition series.Organizers expect to fill at least half of next year's program, themed "The Young.The Wise. The Undiscovered,"with people they discover through the process. "Every TED conference weaves together a surprising mix of voices–and 2013 will be no exception," said TED director and talent search judge Kelly Stoetzel. "By adding the emerging trailblazers, under-celebrated sages, and hidden geniuses we find on this global search to our usual lineup of well-known speakers, we hope to deliver the most thrilling TED conference yet."
