About TED

TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, which brings together some of the world's leading thinkers and doers to share what they are most passionate about. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design - three broad subject areas that are, collectively shaping our future. Since then, its scope has become ever broader, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline - science, arts, politics, global issues, media, architecture, music and much more. Attendees have called it "the ultimate brain spa" and "a journey into the future". The diverse audience - CEOs, scientists, philanthropists - is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, etc.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring together people to share a TED-like experience. There have been over 3000 TEDx events to date. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis with the purpose of inspiring innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.
