TED and AOL's Huffington Post have teamed-up to countdown 18 groundbreaking ideas that can help shape the world in 2012. Starting today, The Huffington Post is profiling 18 of 2011's most impactful original TEDTalks – and combining them with new blog posts written by the people who delivered them-that they think will shape 2012.
The TED team selected 18 of the most intriguing, provoking, inspiring discussions introduced on TED.com within the past 12 months, including two never before seen discussions, and will be unveiled simultaneously on TED.com and here on the Huffington Post.
It's a great match, as TED is about "ideas worth spreading" and HuffPost is about spreading powerful ideas. The new site combines the best of TED's engaging content with HuffPost's engagement platform: a powerful combo.

Glamour on Arianna in its latest issue:
The feature also highlights Arianna's mission to inspire other women:
"Huffington's vision propelled HuffPo, in five short years, from start-up to one of the most visited news sites on the Web and made the way we both gather and consume news less passive, more participatory-and more fun."
"If my daughters, and women of all ages, are to take their rightful place in society, they must become fearless," she likes to say. "If you want to succeed big, there is no substitute for simply sticking your neck out."
"I feel so profoundly that each one of us has a unique destiny," Huffington says, adding that success is more likely to come "when we focus on our own talents instead of looking over our shoulder."
