Emily is a change from the first planned keynote for this year because of some unfortunate news, but Emily is no stand-in. The accomplished content director is driving one of the world’s best known websites.
Emily McManus is the editor ofÂ TED.com, where she oversees the written words that help people around the world find the perfect TED Talk to watch — and to explore the wider context of great ideas. Since January 2007 she’s helped more than 1,500 ideas on video connect with more than 1 billion viewers. She’s passionate about short, clear writing; encouraging young writers and editors; and creating spaces and tools for better online communities.
Before TED, McManus headed a regional magazine group, and wrote and edited for magazines, books and weekly newspapers. She was copy chief atÂ WiredÂ and theÂ San Francisco Bay Guardian; her first adult job was at a tech magazine calledÂ LAN Technology.
