Jamie Oliver Wins 2010 TED Prize

British chef and food TV personality Jamie Oliver has won the 2010 TED foundation prize.

The prize grants him $100,000—and something much bigger: "a wish to change the world." He'll unveil the wish on February 10 at TED2010 and we, the TED community, will make it come true.

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design; the foundation runs a series of conferences that promote "ideas worth spreading." I guess we'll see what new idea Oliver wants to spread in February. As you may recall, he's no stranger to good ideas. See School Dinners/Feed Me Better and the Fifteen Foundation.

(For an idea of what a TED Talk is like, check out this video of Mark Bittman at a 2007 conference, after the jump.)
