TEDxBoston 2014

Revolutionary Ideas Revisited

Our 2014 event, Revolutionary Ideas Revisited, featured alumni speakers reexamining the ideas that have captured our imaginations and our intellects over the past five years.

We witnessed stories of hard work and unexpected outcomes, of probing deeper into complex issues, and of the joy that comes from turning ideas into reality. But we weren’t just looking back. We also invited new speakers to offer fresh perspectives on the timeless human conditions of trust, marriage, and death.
