Last November, TED announced it would award $1,000,000 to Dave Isay, Founder of StoryCorps. On the tenth anniversary of the prize, both StoryCorps and TED say they are excited about their future collaboration. Isay will announce his wish on March 17th at the TED2015 Conference.
During an interview with TED shortly after the announcement, Isay emphasized the importance of listening, saying it is what StoryCorps is really about. “Listening is generosity,” he told TED. “Listening to someone else closely is one of the most valuable gifts we can give to another human being.”
