TED is a non-profit, global foundation, dedicated to “Ideas worth spreading”, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED started as a conference serving as a crossroad where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged. The x in TEDx stands for an independently organized event, designed to stimulate dialogue, and give communities and individuals the opportunity to have a TED-like, and TED-licensed experience at a local level.
