The TED Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional individual who receives $100,000 and “One Wish to Change the World.” The goal is to help the individual turn their idea into inspiring action. This year for the first time ever the prize was awarded not to a person but to an idea: The City 2.0. The TED conference organizers convened about 30 leaders in thinking about cities to come up with a proposal.

And the winner is: www.thecity2.org

It’s a platform and a social network for helping people who want to make their cities work better find each other, collaborate and make good things happen.

During tonight’s event, representatives of businesses stood up and made pledges of help to the social network and to the people who will use it. Among them were Guru Banavar, chief technology officer of IBM’s Smarter Cities organization, who said IBM is helping out with data analysis technology; and Zia Yusuf, CEO of Streetline, who pledged a free pilot of the company’s parking-spot-finding technology to the first city that asks to try it out.

The $100,000 reward will be split among the 10 best ideas that emerge from community groups using the social network.

“We urge you to come together and create things that really matter,” said Chris Anderson, the curator of TED.

Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks

The award recipient deserves the recognition. The primary goal of the platform is good to be true though this may remain just an aim for everyone else. I do still hope that its objective will be realized in today’s modern way of living.
