About The WWW Conference
Richard Saul Wurman, creator of the TED (1984-2002), TEDMED (1995-2010) and the eg conferences (2006), will celebrate improvised conversation in its most informative manner.
Simply pairings of amazingly interesting individuals prompted by a question, generating a conversation. For 10 minutes to 50 minutes. And so it will go – conversations interlaced with threads of improvised music. An astrophysicist and a microbiologist. An actor and a playwright. A jazz musician and a classical one. An energetic exploration of the lost art of conversing.
Extraordinary individuals: minds and musicians in improvised discourse

The most innovative moments, the sparks of ideas, and fundamental truths come from conversations between two individuals.
In the future, the truth will be our most valuable commodity. It is fitting that truth, a commodity that we most value and desire, is amazingly scarce.
If among all the buttons on your remote control there was one button called truth, wouldn't you push that button?
WWW is designed to metaphorically provide such a button and create a setting that will allow truth to be revealed.
