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.)

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a
four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those
world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference
invites the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their
talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included
Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson,
Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and
former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place
each spring in Long Beach, California, along with the TEDActive simulcast in
Palm Springs; the annual TEDGlobal conference is held each summer in
Edinburgh, Scotland.

TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily,
the recently launched TED-Ed platform for students and educators, the Open
Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as
well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide,
and TEDBooks, short e-books by speakers that elaborate on a single idea
originally presented on TED's stage. TED has established the annual TED Prize,
where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the
opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or
groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the
TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe
to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of
their remarkable projects and activities. Follow TED on Twitter or on
Facebook.
