A visual account on world changing events

Year after year events take place at IE and elsewhere which demand remembrance, sharing and continuity on the conversations they entail. It is an energy which can hardly be shared if not lived and due to an overloaded agenda of work which awaits for us at the office as we return to our daily schedules; whichever experience quickly diffuses between layers of paper and email. Or not? How about a visual experience? This is what TED is doing with their annual gathering.
Certainly their videos on TED Talks already make accessible their content to a broad range of people who cannot make it to the event. But this visual portrait of each session helps not only retain the key messages but perhaps relieve for a brief moment the experience which took place at each conversation. I looked more into detail at that conversation given by Ben Zander; I was not on that specific session, but I have been twice in sessions with him and it certainly allowed me to relieve those moments. Perhaps it is an exercise worth exploring if you want your audience to leave your events with something to take home with them.
