Five years ago TED was something, that was enjoyed by a thousand people once a year. Today, it's something enjoyed by about three hundred thousand people every day. [ TEDx : x = independently organized TED event ] This event here today actually seems equally miraculous. TED itself had really nothing to do with organizing it It's one of more than a hundred that will be held this year, around the world. This is being done for passion. Perception is not a passive process. We are active participants in this game. We're now being told, that 96% of the universe, even with all our devices, is stuff we can't even see. All around the world can share the same vision in real-time. Let's talk about dentists, vasectomies, guns and shark attacks. Take a breath now. And, as you breathe, think about what is in your breath. It's an incredible honor, to be involved in a brand new think that TED is doing. I think it's life-changing. It will shake the existent world. The world has tainted its music and we are going to restore the passion, the energy, the feel, the tanor that lives inside this music. TED is part of a much bigger revolution and global education, that's made possible by the web. Claire Whitecross, TEDx Rome Tino Lutteral, TEDx Buenos Aires Grey Lindley, TEDx London Albarelo Halley, TEDx Arabia David Troy, TEDx MidAtlantic Elisa Wiefel, TEDx USC Herb Kim, TEDx Newcastle, Sheffield and Manchester Stephan Balzer, TEDx Berlin You can't just relax and let other people around the world spread inspiration. Your life's only have to take responsibility for it and do something yourself. [ TEDx : x = independently organized TED event ]

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
