You know your conference has hit the big time when Robin Williams steps up from the audience to fill the dead air during an embarrassing, show-stopping technical glitch.
Those are the words of Kim Zetter of Wired reporting from the TED (Technology, Enterainment and Design) conference taking place in Monterey, CA.
How great would that be? A free 10 min., impromptu performance from Robin Williams?

When the crowd recognized who he was, Williams was invited on stage and let it roll for about ten minutes. Wish I’d been there. Check out Kim’s article linked above.
