New York, NY (PRWEB) March 6, 2007
The TED Conference in Monterey California is an extraordinary gathering of individuals who are both Thinkers and Doers.
Magnify.net is pleased to announce that it has designed, built, and will launch a video channel specifically for the TED Community. The Channel, which is live now at http://www.TEDtv.magnify.net , will gather together all of the extraordinary TED Talks that are published currently on the web, as well as allowing members of the community to propose videos that they feel would be of interest to members of the community.
In anticipation of a number of TED attendees who've announced plans to either Blog, or Video Blog the event, the Channel will also provide a one-stop stop for that editorial material as well. Among the attendees at this years event, Bill Clinton, Paul Simon, and Tracy Chapman are all going to record TED talks for future syndication.
The Site will be open to the public, and will include timely updates from this years conference.
Currently the videos that are premiering on the site include:
Al Gore, Ken Robbins, Majoura Carter, David Pogue, Tony Robins
"Magnify.net allows anyone with a web browser to view the Talks, to share them, and to participate in rating and reviewing the videos," said Steven Rosenbaum, CEO of Magnify.net. "TED is an important example of Web 2.0 in action. This event was always private, exclusive and high-level. But the decision by Chris Anderson and his team to share the videos on the web is symbolic of the openness that the emerging web offers."
While attending TED is still relatively hard to do - now anyone with a web connection can listen in and connect with some of the most extraordinary minds and powerful new ideas of our time. "It's exciting to be part of TED, and now the wider video-sharing community will be able to explore these ideas as well," said Rosenbaum.
Magnify.net currently powers more than 2,900 channels of community-curated video. The publishing platform makes it easy for sites to integrate user-generated video. Current partners include The Weather Channel, Rodale's Bicycling.com, as well as popular sites like YouSurfTubes, and The New York Hamster House.
Powered by the passions of site visitors -- Magnify finds relevant user-generated videos and gives a site the tools to build a vibrant video community.
Founded by a team of experienced media, technology and web development entrepreneurs with a strong track record of best-of-breed innovations, the Magnify.net team is led by Steve Rosenbaum -- an early innovator of user-created video. Rosenbaum created 'MTV Unfiltered' -- the first series produced entirely by viewers. Simon Cavalletto is the company's CTO.
