TED is nonprofit and is made for sharing ideas and spreading them. TED can help you engage with ideas and share your own knowledge with different people. I knew about TED for a while now, but I never got my hands on it, and I am beginning to love it.
And then TEDx came along. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
There is an upcoming event for TEDx, TEDx Safat in January 18, 2012. If any are interested in attending here is the link:
I am so going to attend the event
