TED 2009 held in Long Beach, CA
Normally the TED Conference is held in Monterey, CA, but in 2009 (the 25th Anniversary of the conference) it moved to Long Beach to accommodate a larger number of visitors.
Perhaps the most memorable moment of the conference was when Bill Gates released a jar of mosquitoes during his talk about preventable diseases and malaria. The point was well made.
