TED Delivers on Day 1

Some highlights from the opening day of TED:

* Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, lays out his vision for the next big thing: Linked Data.

* P.W. Singer documents how technological advances are transforming warfare.

* Jake Eberts and Jacques Perrin demo Oceans, the ultimate in nature documentaries.

* Bill Gates lays out a vision for combatting malaria and strengthening teaching.

* Pattie Maes previews how humans can harness a sixth sense, with technology feeding us information in real time about the people, places, and things we encounter.

* Regina Spektor wows the crowd with her dark, beautiful songs.

* And Jason Hackenwerth unveils his vaguely unnerving balloon sculpture Spectronomic Photoluxe.

All in all a great opening day.
