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
