About TED 

TED is a Nonprofit Organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. TED stands for "Technology, Entertainment, Design -- three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our future.  The diverse audience of CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, such as Brene Brown, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, and Bono and can be viewed online at TED.com.


About TEDx
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx (x = independently organized TED event) is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized but subject to rules and regulations.
