Editorial Reviews

An all-access, backstage pass to the hottest gathering in the world, (WIRED Magazine) THE FUTURE WE WILL CREATE is an exhilarating behind-the-scenes tour of this stimulating and paradigm-shifting meeting of the minds, an annual conference where theoretical physicists, 11-year-old violin prodigies, and venture capitalists present and exchange bold new ideas that will change everything. A veritable Cirque du Soleil of the psyche, TED (Technology Entertainment Design) brings the talent, energy, and collective spirit of the planet s top doers and thinkers together to plot a better future.

Directed and narrated by actress Daphne Zuniga, this intellectually-charged film captures the best of TED 2006, including mind-blowing appearances by former Vice President Al Gore, Dr. Larry Brilliant, the man who led the successful campaign to eradicate smallpox, Nicholas Negroponte, a computer scientist with plans to put a $100 laptop into the hands of students in the developing world, the founders of Google, and many more inspired and inspiring TEDsters.

The future is now in THE FUTURE WE WILL CREATE: INSIDE THE WORLD OF TED. This entertaining and thought-provoking film will change the way you look at yourself and at the world.

DVD Features: 12 Additional Full-Length TEDTalks

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Tech Talks October 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A fantastic DVD with some of the worlds brightest thinkers and doers. I rented from netflix and have preordered a copy from Amazon. Highlights from very intelligent 20 minute conference talks - covering topics of creativity, and proposed solutions to world problems. The TED conference brings movers and shakers together, then real world organizations and solutions are realized. It was also refreshing to see the "follow-up", and what has been done since the 2006 conference. It is wonderful that this conference is finally getting some exposure - outside of the 1000 "invite only" attendees. See also

5.0 out of 5 stars Hopeful visions for the future March 23, 2008
This is a documentary I would recommend to almost anyone interested in technology, the environment and finding solutions to many of the world's most pressing problems. The TED conference is an annual event of short talks by leading scientists, business leaders and others with innovative ideas for making positive changes.

This fairly short film only shows a snapshot of the conference. I'd like to have an unabridged version. Still, the pieces shown are inspiring and thought provoking. The presenters include Al Gore, Anthony Robbins, Matt Groenig, as well as representatives from companies such as Netflix and Amazon. Of course, the most impressive and radical presentations were not made by any of the latter, but by lesser known geniuses in the sciences, technology and architecture. I found it a little annoying that Gore, who was given an extra chance to speak at the end (and attempted a kind of stand-up routine), was treated like the star of the whole conference. Whatever you think of Gore as a politician and environmentalist, I think he is more of a spokesperson for ideas than a genuine innovator or visionary himself. Still, I suppose that's the way the world works; it's necessary to have well known people to spread important ideas and politicians are generally better equipped to do this than techies, scientists and computer wizards, no matter how brilliant.

Some of the ideas presented include a plan to make $100 laptops available to all students; preventing the outbreak of future pandemics such as bird flu; new architectural models to combat homelessness around the world; creating safer burning fuels than charcoal, which apparently kills many people with its toxicity; a model for computer screens that respond to two-handed motions to replace the mouse...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of many efforts to create a better world. February 10, 2008
This film does a great job of introducing people to one of the many gatherings taking place to work on a wide-range of pressing issues.
TED is one of the more exclusive gatherings, with tickets costing several hundred dollars, so this DVD provides the viewer a "pass" for just a few dollars. One of my favorite segments featured a person in Brooklyn who is working to green her neighborhood.
In addition to the TED conference, there are gatherings like the Green Festivals, various sustainable living events, "peak oil" conferences, international events like the "World Social Forum", the Bioneers conference The Bioneers: Declarations of Interdependence and much else.

Actress Daphne Zuniga directs and narrates the vivid TED: THE FUTURE WE WILL CREATE, a survey of a range of legendary minds who join resources to build new innovative ideas such as Google or new technologies. Every year since 1984, for our days, a group of brilliant world minds share new ideas to influence the future: TED: THE FUTURE WE WILL CREATE captures the best of TED 2006 and offers many eye-opening views of this group's participants and influence.

the website has more content, but the DVD gives a better history. I love the concept, I like the narrative, but I was hoping for more of the presentations that were given at TED. I guess it all you could ask for in a two disk set. The web site is a great place to go for inspiration and guidance. [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Fills a void May 19, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For no other reason than the immense lack of substance and truth in our media, this is refreshing, invigorating and and hopeful. It's grown-up stuff of the highest quality. If you don't really want to think, watch the news and they'll do it for you. But if you'd rather reclaim that job for yourself, and can appreciate that others have gone to the trouble too, then you'll really enjoy this. Lots of exciting ideas!

5.0 out of 5 stars A modest, but inspiring documentary December 19, 2008
This film provides in interesting perspective on TED. First, it's about TED 2006, which means that the ideas presented have had time to come to fruition: a man introduces multi-touch, which has become the iPhone. Next, the film is about the whole TED experience, not just the 20 minute speeches: you can see how the speeches lead to collaboration. For instance, you see how Majora Carter goes from outsider to the board of directors of Al Gore's organization. You see Larry Brilliant go from a man with a powerful idea, to the man who runs You see how Bono combined with tech gurus to create a grass roots organization that advocates for Africa. It's not just ideas, it's about the power of people coming together to combine their passions and skills.

How much time have you spent finding problems that you care about deeply? How much time have you spent trying to find a way to solve those problems? TED is inspiring because the solutions are effective and clever, but not genius. If you haven't tried to solve big problems it's only because you didn't think to try. We are all clever enough. We all have something to contribute.
