Chris Anderson

Curator, TED Conferences

In 2001, Chris Anderson's nonprofit Sapling Foundation acquired TED. Anderson curates the wildly popular TED Conference, which is devoted to "ideas worth spreading."

I showed up there in 1998 for the first time, and basically fell completely in love with the conference, the people attending, their willingness to think big, crazy thoughts. From my point of view, it felt like something you could devote your life to.
