What is TED?
TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. TEDx furthers the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading by bringing people together to share a TED-like experience through a program of local, self-organized events. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x=independently organized TED event. Learn more about TED and view TED talks here: http://www.ted.com/
