Our next Meetup is in San Francisco on Feb 9: http://www.meetup.com/sfentrepreneurs/calendar/9542613/

Some of our members asked, What is TED?

TED is an annual conference where some of the worlds greatest thinkers and doers get together and share their ideas. From Nobel laureates to NASA scientists to Al Gore, Sergey Brin, Craig Venter (the main brain behind the Human Genome Project, being accused of playing GOD) are former TED presenters.

Here are 5 video samples we'll be watching together during the course of 2009:
