Ted.com, a Method-designed and built website (read the case study), was recognized with a 2008 OMMA Award for Video Sharing. The winners were announced last night in New York City at the OMMA (Online Media, Marketing and Advertising) Global Conference and Expo.
Designed and implemented by Method, a leading brand experience agency based in San Francisco, New York, and London, Ted.com has already enabled millions worldwide to access TEDTalks podcasts. The site has enabled TED to further its mission of promoting "ideas worth spreading" by expanding beyond the physical conference to reach a vast global audience.
TED is an invitation-only event where the world's leading thinkers and doers gather for inspiration and insight. The audience members - CEOs, financiers, inventors, intellectuals - are almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Quincy Jones, Frank Gehry, Philippe Starck and Bono.
