Did you know that the main TED
was created as an "anti-conference"

The founder of TED is Richard Saul Wurman, who hosted the first TED in California in 1984. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx which is entirely run by volunteers and designed for a smaller, local audience.

About TEDx

x = independently orginized 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.)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 TEDFellows 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.
