Spent an evening redesigning TED.com for fun.

I like what you have done here Andrew, it looks more engaging. The only thing I dont like is the treatment of the icons, I think the inner shadows are too harsh. It might look better if they where a solid colour?
looks awesome, and it definitely needs it.
Not sure about the logo, but everything else is superb. GET TED TO CHANGE THEIR WEBSITE NOW!
As always, well done. Andrew = Awesome.
I love the Meta Lab style, you guys add all the right touches. And I like this a lot but the navigation icons, the sign in/register buttons and the buttons in the sidebar all feel disabled to me.
Superb work Andrew. A great improvement over the current design.
i think there must be more space for video. This site is all about lectures
Great job, was just on that site and made me think of a redesign too. Very clean.
@Sergei Emelianenko - Nav arrows would appear on the video grid when you :hover over it.
I dont think TED.com and gradients/shadows go together but nice design
Looking good! :)
I like it, but you've gone with a bit og Vista look, which sucks, other than that love the usability.
Michael Jordan is still doing TED Talks?
Overall, I really dig this. However, while the big picture certainly seems more engaging than the current ted.com, there are many details that could use some refinement:
1. The type used along the black navigation bar feels small for how important I believe that section to be to the user's interaction with the home page. I get what you went that way: to keep it all on one line. However, I wonder if it would be better to have the navigation items on the left span the whole width of the bar, and move the "Find 40 minutes of jaw-dropping TEDtalks/Surprise Me" feature to the bottom of the big videos window, nice and big.
2. I would put more post information in the blog section, and limit the number of posts to 3-4. I am less likely to choose a link from a long list of links than I am a shorter list of links. I see that long list, and feel I don't have the time to click and check out each one, given that the titles don't always give enough context for what is in the actual post.
3. I'm curious how important TED feels the "TED Conversations" section is? I clicked on the last one in the list on their homepage, and it seems the discussion is rather current. Seems to be a pretty important section on the site for their users to interact with one another. Not sure leaving it off the homepage is a good idea.
4. Not that I care it isn't there, but I can't imagine TED ever giving the green light on a design that doesn't even mention the "Ideas Worth Spreading" tagline.
Those are just some of the ideas I see after a few minutes of looking at your redesign. I think you've got some great ideas here, but a lot more thought needs to go in before it's ready for prime-time.
Wow love that nav bar!
Love everything but the header icons, I feel like simplifying them would do a world of difference.
