TED talks can not be about religion, pseudo-science or politics.
TED talks are inspiring, educational, informative, and wildly addictive. The length of a TED talk -between 3 to 18 minutes – is one of the key reasons behind the format’s success
How can someone possibly say everything he or she need to say in 18 minutes?
A lot can happen in 18 minutes. John Kennedy inspired a nation to look to the stars in 15 minutes. In a 15-minute TED talk, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg inspired millions of women to “lean in.” Steve Jobs gave one of the most popular commencement addresses of our time at Stanford University and he did it in 15 minutes. It took Dr. Martin Luther King a bit longer to share his dream of racial equality—he did it in 17 minutes. If these leaders can inspire their audiences in 18 minutes or less, it’s plenty of time for you to pitch your idea!
