TEDx dedicated a special conference to the oil spill. They sent videographers, photographers, and specialists to the Gulf of Mexico for a week to document the disaster, so they could come back and share what they found in a series of talks. Entrepreneurs, scientists, and artists joined in. The XPrize team announced a multi-million dollar award for the best idea on how to clean up the spill. You can watch the talks on the TEDxOilSpill site, or click on the widget below. Maybe one will generate the motivation to develop an idea worth millions?
